    Our American friends might not speak Yorkshire, so an explanation. A Tad, means a larl bit (Cumbrian) both mean the same,"A little bit", but it is nuanced. When you say "A Tad ", meaning a little, you are deliberately understating, and you really mean, " A Tad windy== Blowing an Effing Gale".
    #But sometimes " A Tad " really does mean a little bit, as in engineering," Just a tad more" means to tighten,or move something a small amount, yes it is a bit difficult but we all understand.
    Quite easy to understand really. However some Yorkshire expressions do not always equal the opposite, as in " I will get the beers in", does not equate to I will pay for the next round, merely an offer to transport the beer from the bar to the table.
    "Hear all, see all, say nout,eat all sup all and pay nout, and if thee ever does out for nout,make sure thee does it for thisen"
    Pay no heed we all love "Gods own"
    Happy Flying

    Well, let's not try explaining why you shouldn't go onto Ilkley Moor without a hat.
