townie means: Similar in definition to Chatham Chav, Kappa Slappa, Essex Girl, Shazza etc. They are girls who wear reebok trainers, kappa-sportswear, white puffa jackets, clowns (a really foul type of jewellery which involves a gold, jewelled, preferably moveable, clown (yes, a clown), the bigger the better hanging off a gold chain), lots of reeeeeally tacky 'Ratners' style gold jewellery and hair which can be any of the following hairstyles - plastered to head with a small thin section curled and styled with half a tub of gel and forced to hang next to face; the pineapple (hair in pony tail right on top of head) or extravagant bun (very long hair twisted into an overexaggerated bun) - all of these hairstyles MUST use a gold scrunchie and as much gel as is humanly possible. These girls normally get pregnant by the age of 12 and have boyfriends called Gazza and Kevin. I know you've seen them walking down the street - sadly, everyone has had the misfortune at some time of their life. (ed: now that's what I call a definition!) Talking of definitions, we received this... and I forgot to note who sent it (sorry): I was surprised this one wasn't in the dictionary already. (ed: which it was of course... but never mind the technicalities). I first came accross the word in the early nineties when I was 10-15 years old. We used it to mean exactly the definition you have listed for 'scally'. At some point, perhaps around 1995, 1996 using the word 'townie' went out of fashion and people gradually began to use 'scally' all the time. Today, in the area I come from (Manchester, but esp. South Manchester) you wouldn never hear 'townie' used in this sense, always 'scally'. I have a friend at university who still uses it as we would've done in Manchester in the early nineties. She's from North Yorkshire and says it's still used a lot there. Further still, another university friend, from London, says that to him it means something different from 'scally' and always has done. I'm not quite certain of his definition but he may say, for example, "I don't like going out in Leeds on a Saturday night because it's full of townies" - meaning more like the general 'locals' of any social class, age, dress-style., Sorry for the lengthy explanation! What fascinates me most about this word is the way it was used consistently by people in the area I lived in when I was a younger teenager and then suddenly, within about a year, everyone was using 'scally' instead and 'townie' had become an almost uncool thing to say. I remember thinking to myself - I must start trying to say 'scally' instead of 'townie' so that I sound cool. It's been suggested I pass you on to this url for a fuller description of the phenomenon: http://www.geocities.com/chatham_girls/home.htm
tricolore means: Not really 'slang' but interesting nevertheless - quoted verbatim: "Not exactly a word, this was the French textbook loads of people learnt French from. There were a number of things we found amusing such as the guy who always asked "Est-ce-qu'il-y-a un Banc pres d'ici?" in a voice so deep it made Mr Bean sound like Joe Pasquali. The reason for this we realised must be due to the fact that the Tricolore audio cassetes were recorded by two blokes, and since any women's voices were just a bloke talking in a high-pitched voice, they had to make the blokes obvious, and consequently they all had deep voices. This was not helped by the fact that our French tapes were all played on the standard "School-Issue" Coomber cassete player with a big black woven-grille front and a wooden back with holes drilled in it. These cassete players invariably resonated erratically no matter what kind of sound was being played. Some common Tricolore Phrases: • "Comment????" • "Oui, Madamme, il-y-a une Banc la-bas." • "Numero UN!!!, Sex-ion A!!!! EX-OM-PLUH!!!" Of course, all our books dated back to the seventies so when I was at school in the mid nineties you couldn't see the photos due to the "modifications" that other students had made over the years. I remember the Woman-With-The-Petrol-Pump photo was the most graffitied.
charver, Chava means: Used as 'He's a right little Charva'. Describes a group of youths usually described as 'townies' or 'kappa slappers' else where. Charvas typically wear things like Kappa tracksuits and Berghaus jackets, smoke Lambert and Butler cigarettes amongst other things, have hooped gold earrings, spit constantly and wear at least one gold sovereign ring (a gold band attached to the bottom of a gold sovereign coin) on each hand. Most people seem to grow out of 'charvadom' by their early twenties, although may still carry a few of the habits through to later life and will by then probably drive a souped-up XR2I, with blacked-out rear windows and a 5000 watt stereo system. Another trait common to the charva is a loud, slightly sarcastic, nasal laugh and slow 'can't really be bothered to talk' speech. Typical slang words that Charvas use are 'belta', 'mint' and 'waxa' all meaning good or great, with the prefix of 'pure' or 'total' this would mean really good (I couldn't be bothered to send seperate entries for these words, sorry). Another submission on this word goes as follows: In current usage here in Kent - primarily by teenagers as a term of abuse - as in "he's a right Chav." Describes someone who wears Reebok or Adidas trainers, gold jewellery and is likely to be a shop lifter. Girl Chavs wear big gold hoop earrings and like pop music (as opposed to rock, metal, grunge etc.) , Would be very interested to hear any feed back on this as this one word has made me feel like a very out of touch parent!! My daughter was bought an Adidas bag which she refused to use for fear of being called a "Chav". She then gave me the above description, and other teenagers I've asked have given the same with little variation. However, my husband (Kent born and bred) says when he was young the term 'Chav' was used as an affectionate term for a younger boy - certainly not as an insult as it is used now. It would appear that even those teenagers who dress as described are deeply offended by the word. (ed: both added verbatim - some feedback *would* be nice! I have the idea it is derived from an Indian/Pakistani word for 'friend' and would like to have some confirmation either way!) (ed: interesting comment from Vic) I followed a link to your site where it was explained that the expression, Charva, was a nineties thing. "Ow ya going, me old charva?" "Not bad. How's life as Cannon-fodder?" And so on. I miss him. He was a good bloke.
