Everyone around here seems to ‘raid’ the stationery cupboard. It’s fine guys! Take what you need!!
Can ya lend us a fag?
‘crash’ us a fag in my day. Implies I’m clumsy??? How dare you!
No fag for you.
Note: I am actually very clumsy
I say inanimate things “want” or “don’t want” to be something. eg “The screw doesn’t want to be that tight” etc and I never knew that was weird and/or regional.
Not verb usage but constantly irked by the way Southampton natives say “where’s that to?” when asking where something is.
Also said in Bristol and Plymouth.
In Bristol you don’t stroke a cat or dog, you smooth it. It’s really weird.
Proper locals for these parts don’t put an s on verb endings for third person singular. So they’d say “She work there, she do”.
Nothing wrong with that.
‘Led’ is a mildly irksome Westcountry one instead of ‘lying’. As in “I’m just led in bed” Could be a local contraction of ‘laid’ but still annoying.
didn’t know that stretched so far east.
And putting an ‘s’ on every shop name. ‘Tescos’ ‘Lidls’ ‘Asdles’
Thats normal in south Wales, then again we also say “I’ll be there now in a minute”
