Updated dictionary

I’ve just discovered that there is an updated edition of the fantastic Dictionary of Ulster Posh Speak by Billy Simpson and Doreen McBride. (In fact, there have been two updated editions – the most recent is A Dictionary of Local Posh Speak.)

Have duly added it to my Amazon wish list. A great-aunt of mine lived in Cherry Velley and spoke classical Ulster Posh Speak, hence the interest. (Her accent was a slightly curious thing to end up with, as she was born in Dublin of English parents, but never mind the technicalities.) My other Cherry Velley-dwelling relatives were migrants from England and never really picked up the lingo.
