Thread: Words you use that isn't understood elsewhere.

  1. #1

    Words you use that isn't understood elsewhere.

    For me, it's "Shunk". I won't say what it means as I want to see if anyone knows it.

    'anging (Hanging with the 'H' dropped.) It means 'disgusting' or 'ugly'.

    I once asked a woman in a bakers shop in Sunderland for a couple of baps. Her and her fellow workers all burst out laughing. I then changed it to Cobs and they looked at me like I had two heads

    You could have just asked for rolls and not wasted everyone's time.

    I suspect a few on here will know the word, but years ago (OK, decades ) I made, and played on, a "gambo". It once came up on Call My Bluff.
