Local slang

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
What local words do people use that other areas don't use?
In my town a "netty" or "nettie" is a toilet and "dunch" is bump into. There's some more here http://www.newcastlestuff.com/ashington.html but I don't use most of them.

    they all say it round ere, its quite funny really coz thats all they no how 2 say lol

    O wee also have a term for female chavs in belfast. Ya know the gold rings in every finger. The thickest, roughest looked gold earings with hair greased back in bun with about 10 scrunchies. Usually finding themselves pushing a buggy, whether it's their kid or not; they seem to think it makes them look responsible/mature. Anyways we call them belfast millys. Well just millys.

    I hear that a lot from people in Edinburgh. Unfortunately it pisses me off 'cause the guy I first noticed to say it a lot was a complete wanker. :(

    derby is too boring for any personalised slang i believe
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    skeet-chav
    yoke-E
    nippo-gypsy
    noaf-head
    dort-ugly
    munya-nice looking
    rulya-mad
    rank-bad
    mangled-off it
    smacking out-off it
