Northern slang in general. :dread: 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. :lol: 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.

I find that unbelievable. Chip butty is such a well known term, I have even seen them advertised in bars in America.

If you have never tried one, then you absolutely should. A good chip butty is amazing.
