GUEST,Mr Red Colloquialisms- Post & Define 'Em! Fun! (212* d) RE: Colloquialisms- Post & Define 'Em! Fun! 04 Nov 09


Our Black Country family used to used the word

tranklements,
noun usually used in the plural. these are the ephemera that burden you, cannot throw out, but are by and large without useful function. eg jewelery.

The ceilidhnauts of England refer to their genre as
E-Ceilidh, specifically English Ceilidh.
Dances can be from anywhere but are most likely to be from England &/or written here. Because we are English. Ranting and Hornpipe steps are common, unlike (say) Scottish dancing where Hornpipes don't exist and Ranting means telling the E-Cailidh dancers that stray into Scottish Dances that they should stand still until they are required to move instead of bopping all the time! And improvisation is not a feature of Scottish Dancing (or English Country dancing much neither).

Ducks and runs for cover.................
