Alas, no!! lol!
Alas, no!! lol!
How about that soccer in the UK?
... It's Football!! lol!
Just gotta love our English football!
I don't have any "fresh" Britishisms. Of course that could change in October when we will be welcoming the British invasion.
... And we can't wait to be back! Less than 8 weeks now!
It's coming up fast!
Yep: 50 days today!
I should check the list at the beginning of the thread one day and update it as required!!
Thanks for the translations! This will come in handy when I visit London next October. :woohoo1: :woohoo1: :woohoo1:
Ha ha this thread is wicked!
Hopefully this hasn't been said yet and i've missed it but a phrase used a LOT on a Sunday morning after the night before is
'I feel rough.' (meaning you feel like ****)
'My mouth is as dry as Ghandi's flip flop' (not sure if that's just an english thing)
'alright treacle?' (said by builders usually)
Can't think of anymore at the mo, but will be sure to post when i hear some typical 'britishisms'
Can't believe I almost forgot my fave one that i use a lot with my friends
'Boreoff!!' (said with disdain usually)
To be used if someone is being a boreoff, if you don't wanna do something that is boreoff, if you see something that is boreoff....
just for anything that makes you bored really. Example:
'Coming out tonight?'
'Nah i'm really hungover still'
Only just seen this thread, and it's really put a smile on my face - loving all the Brit terms - didn't realise how many us Brit-folks say without thinking that it might not make any sense to people outside of the UK.
A couple more for ya'll...
"you're having a woolly-scarf / giraffe" (having a laugh - a bit of the old Cockney Rhyming Slang for you)
"whatcha" - informal hello
"spag-bol" - spaghetti bolognese
"tasty crumpet" - a compliment aimed at somebody you fancy
