    Cockney Thread

    So I'm heading down to london and I need to polish up on my cockney. Could someone be so kind as to teach my some cockney so I don't look foolish. Thanks.

    Brummie?

    I understand most accents fine, Well except Scottish or heavy Northern Irish!

    I am a southerner though! :giggle:

    I use all of these!!, Does that mean i'm cockney? :

    * "Let's have a butchers at that magazine" (butcher's hook = look)
    * "You're a berk!" (berkshire hunt = ****)
    * "I haven't heard a dicky bird about it" (dickie bird = word)
    * "Use your loaf and think next time" (loaf of bread = head)
    * "Did you half-inch that car?" (half-inch = pinch, meaning steal)
    * "You will have to speak up, he's a bit mutton" (mutt'n'jeff = deaf)
    * "I'm going on my tod" (tod sloan = alone, or own)
    * "Are you telling porkies?" (porkies = pork pies = lies)
    * "Are you going to rabbit all night?" (rabbit and pork = talk)
    * "Scarper lads!, The police are coming" (scarpa flow = go)

    I use the words not in the same expressions though!

    I could also say the different pronunciations of the swear words.

    But I doubt you'll be needing them!

    Due to the to swear filter you have to fill the ****, Most are obvious though!!

    Yeah, Might be best to stick one "*" in.

    The barclays bank in particular i'm surpised it didn't pick up!

    I always thought it was "Barclays Bankers - Total wa*kers" :giggle:

    Right thats me done for the night. I'm off for a Brad Pitt and then I'm going to bed where hopefully she might give me some crust of bread while she sits on my Chevy Chase. :thumbsup:

    :w00t: I like it. A true Londener (pronounced Lahndener). Im from Sarf Lahnden, it's the accent that counts, but if you can bung as many cokney rhyming slang phrases in there you will be fine.

    I am from the East End and a Cockney, the slang is not used as a form of language maybe the odd bit here and there you wont have any probs sussing out whats what the slang came about when congermongers had the police on thier backs for selling thier wares in the streets so the slang developed like a code enjoy your trip.:roll:

    The most common one I think. (Heard today!) is "Dog and bone"

    I presume its cockney!

    Edit and Have a turkish (bath) = laugh.

    And champagne Charlie for lemonade money (Love that saying, Whether its cockney or not!)

    dunno why your worried ,there's no londoners left down saff,,,,they all live in spain,,,,now if i was you i'd be catching up on pakistani,jamacian,chinese,ect ect,,,,then you will be fine

    They got something funny going on with money:| They talk about ponies ... which means a tenner or something. Think monkey may have been another amount. Dunno if it is lahndan or just not scottish.

    Is monkey £25? :giggle:

    ]Here's a translator!! It comes up with all sorts of Jackson Pollocks :giggle:

    Best piece of southern dialect i heard was when i went to the greyhound track.

    "Four's a car-pit", in reference to dog number 4. Now, dog number 4 was running particularly bad in that race.

    I later found out what was meant by that. It meant the other dogs were walking all over it, like a carpet :giggle:

    Well, it made me smile along with, "You're 'avin' a woolie intcha", as in, wooly hat and scarf, which meant laff, sorry, larff......halcyon days

    (all "typos" are on purpose to help aid pronunciation :thumbsup:)

    Ayrton Senna (AKA Dead Brazillian) = £10
    A score = £20
    Pony = £25 (Gaia, remind me to owe you money)
    Bullseye (or 1/2 a ton) = £50
    A ton = £100
    Monkey = £500
    Archer = £2,000 (the amount he handed to a pro....)

    And for anyone that thinks you need to know ANY of this sh#t coming to London, I'd like to sell you some of those paving slabs that are made of gold....Iom-RF...you still looking to sell that cow for some magic beans?!?!?

    Don't take to too much colour (other than green hair & purple suits) so wasn't planning on dodging off again just yet...if I did you'd only end up starting another thread wondering where I am?!?!?
    (Amazing how worried people get when they don't know where I am or what I'm up to!?!?!)


    Should've thrown back a piccy of Dot or the lovely Pat (with photoshopped green hair) if you wanted a cheap "bubble"....

    PS - Be grateful I never said you were like Ethel, playing with your lil' Willie!!!!

    The sun must've got to your bonce!!!

    I haven't seen Eastenders for years either!!!
