Lovely post, Ed.
As a north Cumbrian, albeit one born to 'outsiders', I grew up surrounded by yin, ut and mun, but never heard 'lig' - or, indeed, noticed it in the text, until it was mentioned here.
My favourite Cumbrianism is the name given to the local evening news programme. Known to some as 'Border News and Lookaround', it was invariably referred to as 'Border Crack and Deekaboot'.
Crack - the craich of Gaelic, and deek the dekho of Hindi through, I suppose, Romany roots. Odd thing, language!
