    and in geordie its pudding


    OLDEST LIVING ENGLISH?
    The Angles and Saxons brought with them to Britain a language which was the forerunner of modern English and indeed it was the Angles of Denmark that gave England its name – meaning the Angle land. Over the centuries the old Anglo Saxon language changed beyond recognition with the gradual introduction of Latin, Norman-French and other foreign influences.

    Today the only part of England where the original Anglo-Saxon language has survived to any great extent is of course the North East. Here the old language survives in a number of varieties, the most notable of which are Northumbrian and Geordie. It is from the ancient Germanic and Scandinavian language of the Angles that the unique local dialects of Northumberland and Durham primarily owe their origins.

    Depends what time it is surely, mate? If I go out with the bairn for some food after she’s out of school then we are going out for tea...

    Nothing changes in that regard. I’ve always used the word desert whether that be at home or in a restaurant.

    I was trying to explain “stone the crows” to my French friend this morning. She likes old English expressions, like “cor blimey” - God blind me - and “Strewth” - God’s truth, etc.

    There are dozens of distinct dialects in this small island, would be a shame if they all died out.

    This bit of olde English is from The Milleres Tale, by Geoffrey Chaucer. Should be right up your street Roy...

    ‘And prively he caughte her by the queynte...
    And heeld her hard by the haunche-bones, and seyde, “lemman, love me al at-ones, or I wol dyen, also god me save!”’

    Breakfast, lunch, dinner followed by dessert. Well that's what I ask the servants to get for me. Supper, pudding and tea are for the plebs

    Yep.

    It’s one rule for Commie and another for the rest of us.

    I would try to do something about it if I could avoid the Cooler.
