    I've noticed it a few times now in conversations with people, that they seem to add "like" on to the end of a sentence! Is this a typically Northern thing?! (i could be way off track here, so bear in mind that even Bristol is north of me!!)

    I see, like!

    And i also noticed "Mega" seems to be used a lot within the Yorkshire Vocab, west yorkshire in particular?

    That speaking style hit the States about 20 years ago and left about 10-15 years ago ;-)

    My housemate from Basingstoke says "like" a lot, so annoyingly I seem to have picked it up too.

    it was directed at the Emley lot, but obviously they don't realise they are doing it and therefore haven't picked up on it yet!

    HA! I do say like but not that often, or if I do I don't notice it.

    I would have thought "like" would have been more associated with scousers
