Pitmatic, is a dialect of English used in the county of Northumberland. It developed as a separate dialect from Northumbrian[?] and Geordie due to the specialised terms mineworkers used. An example of this is the word 'Cuddy'. In Northumberland and Tyne and Wear this term is an abbreviation of the name Cuthbert, but in Pitmatic, as in Scots, it denotes a horse, specifically a pit pony[?].
