AKS the word 'ruck':lancs/chshire/staffs? (37) RE: the word 'ruck':lancs/chshire/staffs? 29 Aug 03

Well, about the geographical spread, Greg: the word (ruko) is commonly known here in Finland in the 'haycock' 'heap' (and likes) meanings, but certain people (I included) would not hesitate to use it of people - esp of some formations on the rugby 'field'.


ps etymologists say it is an oldish loanword from Germanic / Scandinavian languages
