GUEST,Anne Croucher OLD SCRATCH = Satan/Devil Origins (22) RE: OLD SCRATCH = Satan/Devil Origins 13 Mar 05

I don't know if this is relevant - I was brought up in Barnsley, Yorkshire and 'it looks as black as old Scrayt's coal'ole' was a saying I heard, when the weather turned nasty - when dark clouds came over before a thunderstorm, for instance.

Scrayt rhymes with date, with a closed throat 'y' -is that a glottal stop? and t'explosive 't' that gives foaks wot writes down songs such bother to tell wot were sung.

Like 'tyumuns' for t'empty uns' in Jowl jowl and listun, Lad.
