Newport slang translator mobile phone app launched


The University of Wales, Newport, has launched its first mobile telephone 'app'.

The Newport Slang Translator is a tongue-in-cheek look at some of the words and phrases that students from outside the area may experience when living in Newport.

The application allows users to search and browse a list of important and sometimes bizarre Newport phrases in native accents with Queen's English translations.

Sarah Dickins and Peter Johnson hear more from the university's Dominic Hannigan.
