I have three questions to ask, all regarding pronunciation/local dialect. I know I've asked a couple in the past, but bear with me.

1. When you are giving somebody a lift on the crossbar of your bicycle - do you have a specific name for that? (around here it's called giving someone a croggy).

2. Do you have a local word for elastic bands? (not as stupid as it sounds - we call them laggy bands).

3. The little alleyways that run between/behind houses - what do you call them? As you can imagine we have millions in York since the place is so old, and they're known as either ginnels (with a hard 'g') or snickleways.

Okay, back in my box.
