Speak Nottinghameze

Recommended Posts

According to dad it's an Arabic word he heard whilst serving in Egypt although I bet no Arab ever pronounced it the way we do.

 

Following Jonabs post - why do we run all the words together when writing Nottinghamese?

 

As in:   Entenyonyergorrenyonyer?   It's easier if we write Ent eny on yer gorr eny on yer   and it makes sense...…..?

 

Just a thought..

Re SNAFU and FOOBAR (that should read FUBAR). I thought they were British army acronyms. As a kid, I remember a cousin (big-wig in the army) using them liberally and me getting a clip round the ear when I asked what they meant. There were others but they weren't so popular and I've forgotten them.

Those acronyms were used all the time during the American/Vietnam war, then it was called "Namspeak"
