One of my 4 anglo sons asked me today via WhatsApp what I thought of something - I replied that it was a Stoater, I would imagine everyone on here (past and present know it’s meaning)
Led me to think of other words too:-

Brammer

Bowfin

Skelp

Plank

Feart

Middens

Bru (Labour Exchange)

Hevvy

Dogging it



Tried these with my 4 sons there still thinking about it, any words specific to you or your family you want to share!
