The sound you hear is Freud turning over in his urn. 🙂
I watched a show on BBC America & heard someone mention a ” fag break ” ( Obligatory Titter, titter, tee – hee, almost from reflex ).
Oddly enough, the English still spoken in Appalachia & the DEEP South is probably closer to classic British English than any other variety.
I’ve heard clips of that language and had no idea what they were saying.
I was born & RAISED in the South & there are some words & expressions that I need a DICTIONARY for. Combine it with a moderatelt thick / pronounced Southern accent, & I’m linguistically lost.
Hell, my cousin uses ” Y’all ” a la Paula Deen & I cringe inwardly
But I’ve done a small amount of research on the roots of Southern English, & Shakespeare would probably understand most of it. Or so would Dickens.
Spotted Dick Sponge Pudding! How can those words be assembled to describe something edible?
Well, at least it’s microwaveable.
Whatever it is.
