Anyone outside from Sunlun won't have a clue marra!!!Fuggy fust.
We done the Mackem Dictionary other year at work and we were crying at the 'phrases'.Here man yer radge daftie. Yer dinnet even knar is.

Not even close then.Baggsy first go
'Fuggy' means 'I'm first'.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!

The that no one can spell the word leis.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?"
Where I come from, 'swan', 'on' and 'one' rhyme perfectly.Swan rhymes with "on" not "one" though. Or do you say w-on for one? (one rhymes with wun)
