Does anyone else use the word "grockle"? As in... "there goes another grockle" or "that grockle shop". (Not giving away the meaning just yet )
of course i know what grockle means! i'm from glorious devon, and they're everywhere atm! :rolleyes:

what about emmet? my mum's cornish and that's the cornish slang for tourist - its a bit more derogatory i think!

One of my favourites has to be 'suck' ... although it's not really used as much as it was when I was younger ... people today are just too rude

Hello/alright mate I've just seen this old person get very angry/kick off because someone from hartlepool stole her sandwich.

I reckon that's canny close wor lad.
It's just geordiespeak with a twist of smog.
BTW, I'm looking forward to the 14th when the geordies are gonna hammer you lot 3-0.
Correct, except bewer = woman rather than old person. I'm going to enjoy it when we sing nasty nasty songs to Alan Shearer and sir Bobby takes him off because he can't take it, poor thing. Anyway, how is Bellamy's/Woodagate's/Dyer's/Jenas' hamstring/groin/knee* problems? * = delete in line with this month's injury of choice. Poor things.

Eye Eye.

gadge - guy/bloke/man ?? (i used it 4 tht)
proper mad - angry
radgie - fit/stress/strop

monkey hanger ??????????????
stottie - large flatish bread roll bun thing (nice)
Monkey hanger = a person from Hartlepool, as legend has it back in the olden days a monkey landed on the coast after a shipwreck, they thought it was a Frenchman because it talked gibberish and hung it. Which was nice.

i find that half the people that use slang dont even know what it means.....i come from the wirral just over the river from liverpool and im out on liverpool most weekend nights and always get called a 'wool' by scallies....i daringly confronted one the other day to ask him what it meant, and he said "i dunno, but your f***in' one" ..............anyone else got an idea?
i live on the wirral too!! my brother is constantly calling everyone a "wool" it is just a random word he says all the time. And shed too! and the thing with shed is that it has both good and bad meanings. Wool is acutally a term used for people from Lanchashire and also Wales. so maybe because we are from the wirral people in liverpool often lump us with wales. Although when my brother is saying it all the time he is just saying it for the sake of it!!

I know what grockles are! And I'm not from the West country. My dad called me one once for some entirely unknown reason.

I don't think we have too much unique slang round here, though at school if you'd kissed someone you'd "got off with" them and in Cambridge nobody uses that, it's most definitely "pulled"

Anyone heard of the 'band' Goldie Looking Chain? A spoof/mock up of Blazing Squad & 'townie folk' in general? Coming from the ever amazing Gwent, the language/phrases they use in their songs/raps is just normal round here! Including the nice language

'You *naughty word* knows it!'

skank
I'm really hating/loving/liking something, not simply I really hate/love/like something
'ave it! (ahhh such happy memories of the shouts as you enter the common room in semi awake state first thing on a Monday morning...)
I d'do that I do (the d goes in front of everything & I do afterwards, I d'like cheese on my toast I do!...remember Helen from Big Brother years ago? typical Cwmbran accent!)

People up here use 'ladgeful' (erm....hard to explain- sad (not the emotion), unfashionable, embarassing) and 'mega' (substitue for 'very') a lot; there's probably loads more, but I can't think of any right now.

i put like inbetween quite a lot of words randomly in sentences all the time. I think that is a bit of a liverpool quality because my friends in cheshire always laugh at me for it..

so for like example a sentence like would go like this like yeh it also gets like very like annoying

Ey up, gadge, I just seen this proper mad as bewer throw a radgie coz some monkey hanger stole her stottie.

Now I may have used all those terms regularly before, but I hope to god I've never actually used that many in the same sentence. And if anyone (not from Middlesbrough) can decipher that then fair play to you.
just caught up so if someone's already done this.


Excuse me young sir, I have just aspied a young lady have a fit of rage due to a native of hartlypool stealing her . ok no idea what a stottie is but it sounds like food

My dad's a monkey hanger... It implies that people from Hartelpool are idiots, because they couldn't tell the difference between a monkey and a Frenchman. I believe I have a postcard with a monkey being hanged on it actually, I just don't know why I have it...
