I come originally from just outside Merseyside, where Liverpool is situated. Here’s a few local terms.
1.Woolyback - anybody from the (Lancashire) towns around Liverpool, where sheep farming was historically common.
2.Scouser - anybody from Liverpool, where ‘scouse’ is the traditional dish. Scouse is like ‘stew’ or ‘hotpot’, with no crust. Ideally the potatoes should ‘drop’ so they are a bit soggy. Scouse is more solid than runny. It was originally a Viking dish and it’s lack of ‘runny-ness’ meant they could cook it on board longships without it sploshing over the side of the pan on a slightly choppy sea.
3.Pants - (not sure how localised this is!) - simply means trousers (NOT underwear!). It also came to mean ‘rubbish’ or no good. That film was ‘pants’!
4. Antwacky - old-fashioned, no longer in style. From deliberate mispronunciation of ‘antique’.
Usage: “Our kid’s clobber is proper antwacky”
5. Bins - means spectacles/glasses
6. Dibble - the police, derived from Top Cat’s adversary Officer Dibble
7. A ‘mixture’ - Available in all good local ‘chippies’ (fish and chip shops) means chips and mushy peas. In some parts of old Lancashire (eg, St Helens) it is known as a ‘split’.
8.“I’ll go to the foot of our stairs!” - an expression of shock or surprise. “Betty’s got a boyfriend! Well I’ll go to the foot of our stairs!”
9.Marra - Originally from Newcastle/North East, means mate or friend (pal). “Ey up, Marra, I’ve not seen you for ages.”
10. Hard one to explain the sound of this and I can’t find the origin. It’s “chord”, but the “ch” is pronounced as in chocolate (not cord). It means ‘angry’, ‘fuming’, ‘miffed’, but in a kind of jealous way. “He was proper chord when he found out Betty was going out with Bill!”. It may come from the French ‘chaud’, for hot (as in ‘hot under the collar’)
PS - mention above of St Helens (an old mining down, now in Merseyside, but really a Lancashire pit town, also with (in the past) a large glass production works -Pilkingtons Glass) - one of the best colloquial pub names - “Bird i’ th’and” - as spelt on the sign (In English - The Bird In The Hand.
Great Challenge btw... good fun!
