Northern British Sayings #9: Coil, ‘oil, Roo-ad, Soo-ap

This quick episode of Northern British Sayings covers some Yorkshire dialect.

Coil = Coal.
‘oil = Hole.
Coil ‘oil = Coal Cellar or Coal Mine.
Roo-ad = Road.
Soo-ap = Soap (and possibly also Soup).
Coo-at = Coat. But also, Coit = Coat.
Boo-at = Boat.
Boo-it = Boot.

Any others?
