well, when the instrumentalists take a break, have a tune ready, and start lilting it! my understanding is that's when people offered up their lilts, at house parties when the fiddlers would take a break for a drink and a smoke, and all the dancers didn't necessarily want to do the same, somebody would lilt a tune to keep things going.
