please do your research properly. Quite a few items in your article about the Yorkshireman wanting to write a Bavarian dictionary are appallingly incorrect or at least one-sided, starting with calling the languages mentioned "Bayerische" and Hoch Deutsche" when it should be "Bairisch" and "Hochdeutsch".
ETA: Wow, I sent a site comment before I went for lunch and they corrected those two bits and a few typos I pointed out.

If you take the federal state of Bavaria as a whole, there is no common dialect, what he's talking about is the dialect spoken in Upper Bavaria, which is just one region. Southern and Northern Bavarian are completely different languages which in turn have countless local variations, then there's Franconian and Swabian (neither of which are Bairisch but spoken in Bavaria) as well as a few more minor dialects.

I wonder if everything else is so badly researched?
