Top definition
One who hails from a mining (hence, pit) town, eg Ashington in Northumberland.

Generally speaks with a lowping Northern lilt, eg they would claim to hail from "Eshington" and speak of a "bonny laird" (lad) while rolling their Rs, eg Unlucky Alf from the Fast Show.
Ex-footballers Jackie and Bobby Charlton are obvious pityakkers, as is actor Robson Green, although he is now officially a posh Geordie, unless it suits him.
