Ay Up Me Duck! Dialect Fridge Magnet


"Ay up" is a colloquial greeting native to the East Midlands, while "duck" is a common form of endearment, like "dear" or "love".

Origin of the phrase:

"Ay up/Ey up" is a greeting thought to be of Old Norse origin, and "duck" is thought to be derived from a respectful Anglo Saxon form of address, Duka/Duca/Duc (or Duke), and is unrelated to the water-dwelling duck.
