I quite like the word bonkers. And the phrase stark raving mad.

But my favorite has to be "Ooer!" :D

I've tried to steal 'taraa' from Cilla Black - however, it fails to work well when online due to the lack of... something.

You do realise that nobody says that, right? You learning British sayings off Jeeves and Wooster or somthing?

My brother-in-law's cousin from England said that while watching Friends.


Your BIL's cousin is weird. Where's he from?

I say fish. Maybe it's a borders thing. :P

It's pronounced 'CHOON' and only used in a non-ironic way by chavs ;)

Are you a chav? :O

Must be southern. I'm northern US, and I've never heard it said.

"A'ight" is a "gangsta" term, and I dont think I've ever heard anyone but wannabe "gangstas" saying it. It doesn't know a specific area, though, (unless you live in the middle of nowhere), since it's basically a rap word. It's probably not heard too much outside of the US, though, unless it's in music or something, as Anoohilator pointed out. Could be, but not very often, I would think.

CLICK IT!
Thanks to Laq. :o

A'ight is definitely not limited to "gangstas" as I specifically remember noted redneck Jeff Foxworthy using the term in one of his routines as something rednecks say. He talks about two rednecks in conversation:
Redneck One: J'eat yet? (Did you eat yet?)
Redneck Two: Naw, J'you? (No, did you?)
Redneck One: Naw. Y'ontoo? (No. Do you want to?)
Redneck Two: A'ight.

My mom's friend(with whom we've taken many long car trips) had a few Jeff Foxworthy tapes. We used to listen to them every time we made a trip together. That's why the bit above is permanently lodged in my brain.

Mmmm Dialect's. :D
Did a year on the subject at College. Forgotten most of it now ofcourse. o_O

Although I do recall that Donkey is a Dialect word (Originating from the Devon / Cornwall area I think) and that "Bottom"* is the correct term.



*Should have known aye. :lol:

I have no idea where I heard it. I actually always thought it was "<i>in</i> a bit of a sticky wicket," but in thinking about it I realized that being inside of a wicket would be kind of difficult.

One of my favorite British sayings is "I'm going to the loo". I just find the word "loo" an entertaining way of saying "bathroom".

but unless you're going to a room with a bath or a shower in it you're not going to a bathroom! you're going to the toilet or the loo.

Yes, but toilet doesn't sound at all nice when said with an American accent. It's much too harsh a word, despite all the vowels. And saying loo with an American accent isn't any better.
