This folder is for authors/bloggers looking for help with putting together their websites, and for people who build websites to tell us about their services. :)

J.A., where I grew up, a Tyke was someone of a particular religious persuasion. It sounded like you were using it in a different connotation?

Cambria (cambria409) | 3305 comments I have a question. Where can an author go to get a good website made? An interactive one? How much would this cost?

Hi Cambria, I like the idea of being interactive with readers. I have just started this blog - http://theangelsarehere.wordpress.com...

In Yorkshire slang, it's Yorkshire people; the dialect is quite archaic and it comes from the Viking word for "dog" I believe; certainly you'd hear the locals referring to mischievous kids as "little tykes" (an exasperated, but slightly amused exclamation.

So even dialect words can go awry in the translation it would seem....!

Mark (wordzero) | 14 comments Like JAC above, I'm wondering if I dare ask what the religious connotations are to 'tyke'. I use the word rather frequently in my usernames -- being a Tyke myself (the Yorkshire kind)!

You may dare. When and where I grew up there was still a yawning gulf between those who believed the Pope to be infallible and those who did not. Those with the subject appellation did. Don't think there was any connection, but we did also use it for noisy kids.

The term seems to have fallen into disuse over the years, especially since we are now encouraged to demean another religion entirely.

J.A. Clement (jaclement) | 1328 comments Ah but Phil don't mix up those who think the Pope is infallible with Catholics, necessarily....heheheh (I speak as a lazy Catholic).
Have just realised that makes me a Tyke Tyke! (So good they named me twice!)That's quite funny.

Not much of a gulf between the denominations here, though, esp if you're a singer, have been to services from various of them and realised the main difference is the order of what goes where and if you get to set fire to incense or not. And the main similarity is how few people actually attend any of the churches. Secular society'r'us!

Mark! Greetings, countryman!

Same here, too. Not many worry too much about denominational differences in Oz these days. More time's likely to be spent worrying about the three S's -- Sun, Sand and Surf -- or whether the fish are biting, maybe who won the football.

It's mainly the newspapers that beat up anything to do with non-Christian faiths. As Buddha is supposed to have said, there are many roads to the mountain top and it really doesn't matter which one you follow so long as you try. (Not sure if he actually said that, but it sounds like something he should have)

J.A. Clement (jaclement) | 1328 comments Oh I like that!

Mind, not much time spent worrying about SS&S in London. Will it be sunny? No. There might be sand, but you generally know about it when the wind blows it all in your eyes, and actually it's more likely to be dust made from petrol pollutants anyhow. Joy....
