Meaning of berty dastard

berty dastard means: Amended form of 'dirty bastard' which kids think can be used around teachers with impunity until they are sadly disabused of that notion!

Meaning of over the moon harry

over the moon harry means: To bne really pleased with the result of something that happened. Popularised by boxer Frank Bruno whenever he was interviewed by BBC sports commentater Harry Carpenter. Turned into something of a 'catchphrase' for him! Sadly Frank was recently (Sept. 2003) hospitalised with depression - let's hope he makes a full and speedy recovery.

Meaning of Patience

Patience means: n Solitaire. A card game played alone. I once wrote that the Brits would no doubt start calling it “solitaire” eventually, and some bastard half my age wrote to me to tell me that “mainly older people” call it “patience.” So, sadly, I have to add here that this term is used by “mainly older people.” This reminds me of the time my mother came home in tears when a boy scout had tried to help her across the road. Rather oddly, we Brits also call another game “Solitaire.” Just go and look it up like a man.

Meaning of Lingomash

Lingomash means: Is Cockney rhyming slang for a very pathetic website where members of a largely ignorant and uninformed public can attempt to explain origins of expressions with their own sadly lacking ideas as to what something means, or where it comes from, rather than anything grounded in actual truth or historical use. Such as: "I don't Adam and Eve it!" means, quite clearly on Lingomash, "I don't ... watch EastEnders on the day after Christmas Eve ... it." Or something as equally dire or unlikely. Here's a definition of knowledge for you: if a bunch of twats post about something on the Internet with absolutely nothing to back their personal beliefs, claims, fancies or fantasies up, then it's likely you haven't found anything closely resembling "knowledge". There you go. In a nutshell (=Cockney rhyming slang for "Fuck Off you Dozey Bastards")

Meaning of groat

groat means: an old silver four-penny coin from around 1300 and in use in similar form until c.1662, although Brewer states in his late 1800s revised edition of his 1870 dictionary of slang that 'the modern groat was introduced in 1835, and withdrawn in 1887', which is somewhat confusing. Presumably there were different versions and issues of the groat coin, which seems to have been present in the coinage from the 14th to the 19th centuries. Very occasionally older people, students of English or History, etc., refer to loose change of a small amount of coin money as groats. Sadly the word is almost obsolete now, although the groat coin is kept alive in Maundy Money. The word derives from Middle English and Middle Dutch 'groot' meaning 'great' since this coin was a big one, compared to a penny. The similar German and Austrian coin was the 'Groschen', equivalent to 10 'Pfennigs'. The word can actually be traced back to Roman times, when a 'Denarius Grossus' was a 'thick penny' (equivalent).

Meaning of townie

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:

Meaning of bob

bob means: shilling (1/-), although in recent times now means a pound or a dollar in certain regions. Historically bob was slang for a British shilling (Twelve old pence, pre-decimalisation - and twenty shillings to a pound). No plural version; it was 'thirty bob' not 'thirty bobs'. Prior to 1971 bob was one of the most commonly used English slang words. Now sadly gone in the UK for this particular meaning, although lots of other meanings remain (for example the verb or noun meaning of pooh, a haircut, and the verb meaning of cheat). Usage of bob for shilling dates back to the late 1700s. Origin is not known for sure. Possibilities include a connection with the church or bell-ringing since 'bob' meant a set of changes rung on the bells. This would be consistent with one of the possible origins and associations of the root of the word Shilling, (from Proto-Germanic 'skell' meaning to sound or ring). There is possibly an association with plumb-bob, being another symbolic piece of metal, made of lead and used to mark a vertical position in certain trades, notably masons. Brewer's 1870 Dictionary of Phrase and Fable states that 'bob' could be derived from 'Bawbee', which was 16-19th century slang for a half-penny, in turn derived from: French 'bas billon', meaning debased copper money (coins were commonly cut to make change). Brewer also references the Laird of Sillabawby, a 16th century mintmaster, as a possible origin. Also perhaps a connection with a plumb-bob, made of lead and used to mark a vertical position in certain trades, notably masons. 'Bob a nob', in the early 1800s meant 'a shilling a head', when estimating costs of meals, etc. In the 18th century 'bobstick' was a shillings-worth of gin. In parts of the US 'bob' was used for the US dollar coin. I am also informed (thanks K Inglott, March 2007) that bob is now slang for a pound in his part of the world (Bath, South-West England), and has also been used as money slang, presumably for Australian dollars, on the Home and Away TV soap series. A popular slang word like bob arguably develops a life of its own. Additionally (ack Martin Symington, Jun 2007) the word 'bob' is still commonly used among the white community of Tanzania in East Africa for the Tanzanian Shilling.
