As you know, I am from a region of the United Kingdom called Northern Ireland. As with the other regions of the UK, the inhabitants of this vibrant but mostly rural area have some of their own unique ways of speaking.
Some slang words specific to the region include:
I’m from Norn Iron — I’m from Northern Ireland
‘bout ye? — How are you?
It’s banjaxed — It’s beyond repair
I’m foundered — I feel cold
What’s the craic? — What’s your news?
It was good craic! — It was great fun!
How’s she cutting? — How are things?
I’m knackered — I’m very tired
She’s a wee dote — She’s so cute
What an eejit! — What an idiot!
If you have the chance to visit a specific region of an English-speaking country, maybe you’d find it beneficial, or at least entertaining, to do a little research into the local dialect. How about guessing the meaning of this Northern Irish slang: THAT’S TARA.
