    illson /ilkeston local town

  2. You're opening a can of worms there, my friend. There are loads of phrases like that in the East Midlands general dialect. BBC Leicester website once did a whole load of them. Stuff like -

    gorra bag on / in a bad mood
    put wood in't ole / shut the door
    shin tin / she isn't at home

    etc......
