Batch -

I refuse to believe that this is just a Nuneatonism, if you go Coventry they say roll and Hinckley people say Cob, up north they seem to say Bap when I visit, but Nuneaton says Batch is this isolated?

Re: LOCAL SLANG

There's only one Leicester slang thing that I know, which is "me duck" or "m'duck" - which is just like "mate".

My dad always used to say "you;re daft m'duck". And he hit the fucking nail on the head. He was a carpenter. HA! Geddit?

Okay, I'm gonna leave now...

Re: LOCAL SLANG

has anyone mentioned the STAPLE of manc slang yet?

'eey'ahh' - nearest literal translation would be 'here you are,' meaning 'please may i have your attention'. usually followed with either 'mate' or 'yo,' then any range of questions which can imply anything from a wish to know the correct time to 'please furnish me with the contents of your wallet'

a flame never burned as hot as the one that i lit today
