GLOUCESTERSHIRE DIALECT

EVE CHIPPING    Book Number: 86006    Product format: Paperback

From the quirky expressions that hold clues to the county's rich past, to the glossary packed with words which bring the local language to life, explore the fascinating county of Gloucestershire. Whether it's the Roman remains at Gloucester, picturesque villages of the Cotswolds like Chipping Campden and Stow-on-the-Wold, beautiful Cirencester or the Forest of Dean, explore the language and dialect of its local people of all classes. There is a glossary of all creatures great and small like the aichee or akee which is a hedge sparrow or a bout, a rabbit's burrow. In Food and Drink we learn that a bib is a small drink or a sup, that cherry curds are the first milk after calving, and hongered is hungry. Illustrations include the Gloucester Mop Fair in a 1910 fairground scene, a milk delivery cart and a statue for Alfred the Great. Learn the Gloucestershire Wassail, folk heritage, place names, sayings, the Harry Potter connection and more. 80 page illus paperback.
