Berk and loaf[edit]

I see nobody's included the famous "berk", or is that too near the knuckle? Neither is using one's "loaf" in the list, or is that too twee? Dieter Simon

Casting the net a bit wide?[edit]

We've cut down on the examples of commonly used CRS and are insetead getting general UK or CRS painted as local to other regions

  • "arse, the Scots word for buttocks" Arse = UK word for, um, arse.
  • In Republic Of Ireland "Brown bread =>dead" Certainly London/CRS if not near universal.

"Raspberry" used in the US[edit]

Anybody willing to find a source that mentions "blow a raspberry"'s use in the United States? That statement comes from an American. BlueCaper (talk), 18 December 2012 (UTC) 02:08

Scarper off[edit]

"Scarper" is given an origin in "Scapa Flow", but the place didn't enter common language as much until the 1919 scuttling there of the German fleet. Instead, the word was documented as long ago as 1851 by Henry Mayhew under"Scene with two Punchmen", and has a clear Polari connection, not one to Rhyming Slang. I've removed Scarper from the list.JH49S (talk) 17:54, 4 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
