Scouse

Post by Shelley » Tue Jul 05, 2005 8:52 pm

Recently, I came across this obscure (well, to me) word twice in one day: first, in a bio I'm reading about the Beatles; and second, on a BBC mystery in which a person was described as "scouse". When a term I've never heard before suddenly crosses my path twice in one day from separate sources -- well, I feel I must pay attention. I gather it has something to do with Liverpool. Anything else?

I just did a search. Never mind. Sorry to bother you.

No need to apologize. For what it's worth I never heard the term either and so today I also learned a new one (or two)

You might come across a Liverpudlian being called a SCOUSER as well, but it all comes from the stew.

For the sake of coherence and clarity, I have consolidated two parallel current threads that were devoted to the same topic, and have deleted the later one -- EK

A friend of mine from Manchester has used that word and when I inquired she told me "scouse" was a slang term for a Liverpudlian
but not one that you would use to one of them if you werent friends and wanted to keep all your teeth.

Alton, do a WW search on "scouse", and then pick the one that lists several words including "scouser, mancurian(?), . . ." You'll find out everything.

Presumably the word 'Mancunian' was intended -- EK

I think you will find that Liverpudlians are quite proud of being Scousers, were you to use the word you would find that your teeth would be perfectly safe, and in the right setting quite wet with delicious liquid purchased in a glass.
