Well, biologists at the University of Exeter think they do. So, they're setting out in kayaks to find out.

A Yorkshire cod "Eeh bah gum lad"
A Glasgow cod "Why aye Jimmy"

'Why aye' is Geordie surely? But we'll let that pass.
Scouse..'Hey la are you lookin' at me or chewin' a brick?', 'You'd look good alongside a chip butty!' (Cod joke)
