Disappointing the ladies again Phil with the swiftness of your, er...conclusion?

If I time it right, we'd be crossing the finish line virtually together.

Heh, heh...good old Sid!

Think I'll give Forest Rec parkrun a miss and stick to Rushcliffe, wouldn't want to slip on anything at the finish line.

Although given where the route goes at the top of the hill it's probably not just the finish line you need to worry about.

Hmmm seems wikipedia et al all agree with you. But the real world is not wikipedia and in real life people do say "it's nesh out there"

They may well do SR but people often say other things which they think are right such as 'damp squid' or 'I'm on tender hooks' when they are wrong.

Just because people say it 'in real life' it doesn't mean it is right.

Totally different Tommy. This is slang we are talking about. Slang may have it's roots but evolve and change their meaning with use. There is no wrong and right with slang. If enough people use that definition then that DOES become the definition.

Apparently now kids are saying that a new pair of trainers are "well nesh"(cool). Because they are saying it, that now becomes a new meaning of the word.

I aree with Tommy - it might be slang but it has evolved out of a misunderstanding of what the word means.

And in any case SR, why would you want to copy what kids might be saying?

24/05/2013 at 13:40

I'm not copying kids who call their trainers well nesh. I was copying adults who said it was nesh outside for longer than people on this thread have been alive. Take the words bollocks. It originally meant nonsense, then testicles. Now we have the dogs bollocks.That word evolved into  different meanings. Does anyone now say that calling your bollocks bollocks is wrong? Or am I talking bollocks?

Are you sure it wasn't a game played by Catholic priests?  That would make more sense.

24/05/2013 at 13:42

You're right SR I think I've also heard kids saying 'these trainers are a bit parky'.

Quite view on internet and I changed my version of bollocks

My memory of the 1977 case in Nottingham was a bit blurred Tommy

But that's not how they've been using it. It derives from a gothic word that means "tender" of "soft". It's nothing to do with the outside temperature itself and never has done.
