Topic: LOCAL SLANG

so am i the only person here who uses the word 'mint'?
i use it alot (mainly because i'm a bad scally)

these guys i work with are from darlington and use loads of words i've never heard before
e.g. 'ya marra' = your friend
'bogga' = mosher

and some people use 'pikey' i'm not sure what that means

are there any words people use on here that you'd either never use or don't really know the meaning of?

you always stole all my last words

Re: LOCAL SLANG

i am proud of my local slang its amazing and even makes speaking english unintelligble to people from different areas in the uk.

Round here pikey means scally or ned or whatever.  I prefer mush, mishes, rude boys or cunts smile

Re: LOCAL SLANG

the pikeys in stratford rob the skater punk kids who im friends with which is a bit rubbish, even more rubbish those kids call me Emo Joe  :evil:  wink

but yeh local slang

Barrys is the stratford word for townies, or Bazzers

we get a lot of brummy slang here too.

Re: LOCAL SLANG

round nuneaton, atherstone and bedduff parts, apart from marra, me old cock chief, or cocker you hear a bit.

Re: LOCAL SLANG

slang is great. working with north americans they think i'm speaking gibberish half the time because of all the slang and colloquialisms i use without even being aware of it.

'pikey' is a word i've used since age six or so, and was pretty dismayed when someone told me it's a derogatory word for gypsies sad

alex.

Re: LOCAL SLANG

pikeys is used round here for gypsies, but the gypsies who hang around in the town centre are total wankers, so i dont find it that offensive to use, in these parts that is

Re: LOCAL SLANG

yeah i always thought of 'pikey' as being a derogatory word for irish gypsies.

yorkshire has lots of slang. the term that particularly annoys me is "9 while 5" rather than "9 to 5"

and i dont know if i'm hearing it wrong but i've often heard the word "cock" being used affectionately.

Re: LOCAL SLANG

We have the word pikey also. It is used to describe gypsies but also comes into play when idiots want to offend punk kids or whatever. Another one is greebo!! Ha Ha! I just think all these words are funny as. Of course I don't get called any of these things because I'm a fuckin' Ninja.

What now for man raised by puffins?

Re: LOCAL SLANG

I use Pikeys for 'Chavscum'

And Gypo's for Gypsies.

I deal with said gypsies every day at work.

Most of them are a-ok.

You get the occasional arse. Mostly they are easy to deal with though. Let them steal what they want, and don't challenge them about it.

Re: LOCAL SLANG

In Bristol, instead of saying "Where is that?" (in reference to a place), locals say "Where's that to?"

plus they all sound like farmers. it's great! too hilly though.

I hate farmers.

They should ALL be burnt at the stake without trial.

Re: LOCAL SLANG

a few years ago me and my fake brother used to argue and say stuff was better or worse than each others  lives

one would say that and the other would say 'its not hard'

then we started using it on the internet and i started using it on flyers and now everyone uses it.

Tres Bothered = I am not concerned
Crackity Pisps = ex boyfriend/girlfriend (can also mean 'saggy')
Fully Fullfull = Very very good (e.g 'How was the film?' 'Fully good' 'Fully?' 'Oh, Fully Fullfull')
Corpropalat = butter
Gin Pinboard = A really good party
John Denver = A really bad party
Mint = mint
Chiny Reck-on = i have sincere doubts about the accuracy of your statement
Wooze = a broken plate
Boff = the physical act of love, when devoid of actual love.
Polederbarn = to heap scorn upon your enemies
Clodders = parents
Clodderspariot = parents car
C-P Beacon = losing your virginity in the back of your parents car.

Unbelievable. And very brave.

Re: LOCAL SLANG

usually in a sarcastic way though..


"dont be hard." as in dont try and show off etc

Re: LOCAL SLANG

John Denver = A really bad party
Mint = mint

Re: LOCAL SLANG

in belfast (where all my family are from/live) they have pure funny phares

like ice cream cone = poke
if you show new lothes and do a twirl its called a 'burl'
alot of kids will say 'who'd your name' rather than whats your name.
instead of saying ' a portion of chips' they just say 'a chip'

theres loads actually.

also i just realised that pure is a word not everyone uses

you always stole all my last words
