Here it is: The official Leeds urban dictionary

Can you even speak uni?

The cultural climate of Leeds is renowned for being diverse, vibrant and enriched with elements from each of the different 150 cultural backgrounds that inhabits its beautiful streets.

It's home to over 60,000 students (sorry locals x) from all over the UK and all corners of the world, who on arrival to the supposed capital of the north quickly become familiar to all aspects of inescapable Yorkshire lifestyle – the cups of tea, the overwhelming amounts of gravy and relentless day drinking.

But this cultural crossroads where Yorkshire life introduces itself to its newest, more southern recruits (sometimes reluctantly) has formed a sort of sub cultural bonding point, where middle class Cambridge lads chat some shit over a pint of dark fruits with the Yerkshireeeee locals, and after the third drink the north/south divide becomes almost non existent.

But amongst this process of inculturation and the effects of thousands of students spilling into every corner of the city, along came a few new additions to the English language that become essential to communicating to your fellow students and making sure you end up on the same page. You can say you're bilingual on your CV if you know at least 3 of these.

1. Eddy B noun

A slang term for the Edward Boyle Library, named after the Eton educated geezer that was also the Vice Chancellor of the University of Leeds.

"Which library you at bro?"

"Eddy B bro, where else?"

2. Parky (Steps) noun

Once used and resulted in a miscommunication with my flatmates which meant they walked to Hyde Park instead, this is an abbreviation of the Brotherton Library Parkinson Steps on which tourists like to do photoshoots on.

"Shall we get a pic on the parky steps or is that too basic?"

"God no Helena, that is an ultimate no, lets just bun a quick rollie instead and be on our way."

3. Bakery noun

Yet again another shortened term, this is an easier way of referencing Bakery 164, as if the three numbers on the end are just that little bit too much effort to say. Bakery 164 – well. If you haven't heard of it you don't really go to Leeds, do you.

"What we saying for lunch gals?"

"Might grab a bakery cause Mum transferred me my allowance today."

4. Fuzzy noun

The slang term for indie rock and pop Thursday nights at Wire, Fuzzy Logic.

"Are you coming fuzzy Thursday?"

"No sorry I've sorta gone off the arctic monkeys recently."

5. Pass-Agg adjective

Deriving from the private school side of the lexical spectrum, this abbreviation stands for when someone is being passive aggressive. Best pronounced with a strong, loud southern accent.

"Danny was actually being so paaarssss-aggg the other day on the phone it royally fucked me off."

6. Prinks noun

The combining of the words pre and dri- I don't even need to explain this one, it practically needs a place in the Oxford Dictionary.

"Who's house we prinking at? Can we not go to anyone's on Burley Road though I'm not walking that far."

7. Diss noun

Not to be mistaken for the term to launch a derogatory comment to a rival, "diss" is a shortened term for dissertation, the very STRESSSSFULL elongated essay that basically determines whether you get a decent job or work in Waitrose for the rest of your life. Take caution if someone mentions the D word in the library. Let them sit down.

"Wanna come out later for a few drinks?"

"Are you joking. You know my diss is due. AGHGJJGKKLGLGL."

8. Bev noun

A handy, useful contraction of "Beverage", used to reference usually an alcoholic drink.

11. Bump noun

Not the plural of the utensil used to eat liquid type foods, but of course the classic nug of British culture that is J.D Wetherspoons, renowned for its Michelin star grub and the questionably sticky tables. It'll never get old.
