Seeing as naebody kens what diluting juice is, and thanks to the general direction that thread is going in, let's amaze buzzjack with all the words we use every day that would confuse the f*** outta everyone else.



I'll start us off with a word that isn't a slang word but still brings confused looks:

Outwith

Usage: "I often get funny looks when I use the word bawbag outwith Scotland"

Most commonly used as the opposite of within and in place of outside.

mentioned this one in the other thread but 'chap' as in knock

Cowp is what the dump is known as in my family, a lot of people who are Scottish aren't familiar with the term so idk where it came from laugh.gif

also up here we'd say patch instead of ditch but in the past it's also been dogg, dingy and im sure other terms. Scran = Food (not sure if thats strictly Scottish though, i have a feeling its not), blether = chat, dreich = rainy/bad weather. A lot of Scots, including my mum call fizzy juice ginger. I looked up glasweigan slang phrases and Middin' (meaning mess) came up, I didn't think this was just Scotland that said it? ohmy.gif Some also call a sandwich a piece quite often, skelp = hit and "square go" was also one used a lot during school which basically means to ask someone to fight you laugh.gif

I don't use a lot of scottish slang myself although I am really bad for describing everything as "wee" angel.gif

I think of Scran as being more Northern (England) than Scottish. Can't recall hearing anyone use that round here.

'Squinnie' is a Hampshire one I think, refers to somebody who's always moaning and bitching.

Also there's 'mush' which is an affectionate way of referring to somebody i.e 'Alright me mush'.

Them's my favourite ones anyway

Here people sometimes also use it as a general way of talking about like if you're running around doing favours for people or whatever, "Will you do some messages for me?" etc. I never personally use it, I just find it weird lmao

That term is used in Liverpool a lot. Certainly my mum used to say to us 'go for some messages' meaning (mainly food) shopping.

That's slang? I thought that was the widely accepted meaning.

I can't actually think of anything I say that'd confuse people not from the South West, aside from an occasional ironic use of 'dreckly' (because it can a) really confuse people because it means the opposite of 'directly' and b) it's the only Cornish dialect word that doesn't make me want to cringe internally).

Well "Could I have chip spice on those chips please?" seems to be complete gibberish to anyone outside of the Hull area, does that count?
