Smart as a carrot
Ear, Lasso (to rhyme with Brasso), Would you like a creme de menthe frappe?
Anyone outside from Sunlun won't have a clue marra!!!
We done the Mackem Dictionary other year at work and we were crying at the 'phrases'.
Ere man my uncles Ernie Bewick
I have never heard this. My guess is "thick fuck" ???
Baggsy first go
Not even close then.
So fust is more just a northern pronunciation of first rather than being a word in its own right.
Fuggy I was using closely to its real meaning of stale, fusty, stale, bit misty/foggy/warm and thought "thick" ( dense)
Not sure of the quantum leap to baggsy!
(I also used to think impittent was a real word until I was told off by a teacher for using a 'colloqualism' for impertinent)
'Fuggy' means 'I'm first'.
....good lad me uncle Ernie like.
My rellies from Wingate & South Hetton say hinney
You can say it was git big
Or hes git radged him
Or you can call someone a git
Or some people just use it randomly in sentences and it doesnt really mean anything
My Grandda always pronounced the word 'swan' as if it rhymed with 'can', not 'one'.
Always used Swan Vesta matches to light his Woodbines, all 70 per day of them (only in ten-packs, "none of them fancy twenty-packs").
I remember one of my favourite teachers at 1980s Monkwearmouth - Mr Parmley (sp? German teacher...) - who used to take the mick out of the girls for their broadest Sunderland phrases. The one that I still remember perfectly was one girl asking another if they were planning a trip to the leisure centre that weekend, with the beautifully succinct "Is us gan the leis?"
The that no one can spell the word leis.
My mum (god rest her lovely soul) when it was icy outside would say "It's owa card to snar ya knarr"
Always made me chuckle
Swan rhymes with "on" not "one" though. Or do you say w-on for one? (one rhymes with wun)
Where I come from, 'swan', 'on' and 'one' rhyme perfectly.
No-one where I'm from pronounces 'one' as 'wun'. The only time I would say 'wun' would be in relation to a football or cricket result ie 'We won (wun) today'.
56 years old and i've just learned something new
