Slang from around the Alliance

Post  Anna Morphic on Sat Feb 21, 2009 1:54 am

One of the things about being in an Alliance with people from all over the World,is the difference in languages.What might be obvious to someone from the U.K might not be so obvious to someone from say....new zealand.
If anyone has any local slang they'd like to share with us all,just put it in this thread guys.
I'll start it off with a few jewels from my native London.(yeah,i know i'm in Kent,but i lived in London till i was in my twenties.)
Get out your phrase books and try these on for size guys..........

Prannet ...... an idiot.
Barnet .... hair.
Pegs/pearlies .....teeth.
Gordon Bennett ..... exclamation of surprise or fraustration.
Jack Jones ..... on my own.(as in "all on my Jack")
Rosie Lea ..... tea.(obviously.....lol)
Tea Leaf ...... thief/robber.
Clock ..... watch what someone is doing.(example...."i was clocking this woman the other day.")
Innit .... is'nt it?
fag/ciggie .....cigarette.
On my Todd .... alone.
Divvy .... moron.( another use of divvy,means to split up......example,"divvy up the money").
Old Bill/Rozzers ...... the Police.
Nosh .... food.
Phil The Greek ..... Prince Philip.(sorry Phil.)

Just a few to get you started,if you have any local slang,get it on here guys.At least we all know what we're saying to each other then....lol.
All the way from Anna's languauge school........AnnaX.
