Yorkshire dialect

Could someone please explain Yorkshire dialect to me, using written examples (e.g. they say dawg instead of dog, etc.) Thanks!

UPDATE: I probably had to be more specific in my request. The book I am translating now has the following two sentences: "They spoke broad Yorkshire. Humphry’s own accent was educated Yorkshire, with some flat vowels." To translate it, I need to understand what "flat vowels" mean. Could someone please give me some examples of that, specifically? And please do not direct me to videos and such, I know there are plenty of them online but in most cases I am not even able to hear the difference.
