Northern slang in general. Calling your evening meal "tea" instead of dinner. Makes it sound like your dinner is purely a cup of tea.
According to this, I am northern. I only use butty for chips between bread or a roll/bap though.
What would you call a chip butty? I always assumed it was a nationwide thing, do some areas call them something else?
I wouldn't have ever heard the phrase chip Butty if not for the Internet. I don't know anyone in real life who has ever tried one. I imagine chip sandwich would be the only alternative name, although chip Butty is probably a nationwide name that spread from the north, I just intensely dislike the word. I agree with Rightey, chips inside sliced bread is carbohydrate overkill. Carbicide. Also sounds like a helluva dry lunch.
