GUEST,JULIE Colloquialisms- Post & Define 'Em! Fun! (212* d) RE: Colloquialisms- Post & Define 'Em! Fun! 14 Apr 00


Fascinating - especially as I was brought up in one culture ( Scotland) and have lived for years in another (Yorkshire). I consider myself colloquially bi-lingal. I am fascinated by the use of poke for a ice cream in Belfast in Scotland a poke is a bag - as in a poke of chips and fish and chips would be a fish supper.

Does any one have any that they can't stand. I hate poorly - meaning ill and banned it from home conversation. My Dad couldn't get used to the way his male friend addressed him as love when we moved to Yorkshire and my mother couldn't get used to the "are you alright" as the opening greeting.
