In PM CH13 is the line:

Jackie is showing the D's how to "guddle" for trout.

"fingers round the middle of him. He'll lig quiet. But you mun"

Is the word: "lig" correct? It is in several of my editions, but
when typing in these books, I wanted to change it to "lie", but
that is not what is in the books. Is this a typo in the printed
editons? Or is this simply local dialect that I am not familiar
with, and should leave it as "lig"?
