(Thanks to Pramrider for giving me the idea for this thread!)
Well, this forum has people from all over the world! And in every country, or even in every town there are wonderful little expressions that come about.
So lets share them!
(Obviously if it's in a different language you might want to translate it, I'm hoping things won't get totally lost in translation).
So I live in Lancashire England, I'll copy these across from the other thread:
"Dinner" is called "tea".
"Lunch" is called "dinner".
"Cock" is a term of affection (no really!).
"While" means "until" (as well as its usual meaning).
And one that isn't specific to Lancashire that you might be wondering about:
"You're having a bubble!" means "you're having a laugh!". It's cockney rhyming slang.
Laugh rhymes with "bubble bath", and this gets shortened to "bubble".
Another example is "berk", which means a very rude word that begins with a C! (Although the word "berk" isn't offensive).
That comes from "Berkeley Hunt", which is very interesting because in English "Berkeley" is pronounced "Barkeley", yet "berk" is pronounced as an American would say it.
So that's my little contribution! What's yours?
