Book Description

14 Nov 2002 Local Dialect
For the first time-every word of Bristle you need to know, in one book! Speak Bristle fluently, without going to Nice Cool! Master the difference between Forgots Ache and Yukon Talk. Learn Bristle Time- measured in Mince, Daze, Munce and Yers. This valuable guide covers everything from health (Dire Eel) to gardening (Rub Sheep), from geography (Port Zed, Bart Nil, Annum) to shopkeepers' chat (Thin Else? Ooze Necks?). If you're baffled (Blow Defy Know), read it aloud (Seizure Knit Looks) and you'll understand (Get it Sordid Doubt). Try it. (Sink Ready Bull!)

After aquiring this book you will be able to get to know the aireal, go to Asdal in your Cortinal with your girlfriend Emmal and her friend Glorial, and buy some Tial Marial. You could even see the Gert Britain and see the fig red! Read it out to your partner with an exaggerated Somerset accent and you will enjoy hours of fun. Trust me...

4.0 out of 5 stars Select Humour 27 Jun 2014
I've read the majority of Derek Robinson's novels, so I'm more than acquainted with his humour! However, this series of Bristol based books won't be for everyone, as the humour is particular to the location and his phrasing (even for an imaginative person), is not easy to decipher!
Unless you're from the West Country, or prepared to think with a West Country accent (and even then), this will be a "hard read" (not that it's not funny).

4.0 out of 5 stars When it comes to dialect, Brizzle is the best 1 April 2014
People in the city have a penchant for adding Ls to the ends of words and have a delightful Cider With Rosie burr which makes you want a chilled pint on a warm summer's day.

This is a guide to some of the wonderful West Country words and phrases such as.

"I got me bananawls down Asdawl"

By MissD
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this as a used book and was surprised to find what good condition the book was in.
I originate from Bristol and had this book before but it's been mislaid hence another copy.
I can't even get past the first page because I laugh so much until tears fall from my eyes.
I love this's hilarious.....but then its Bristolian!
Very highly recommended.
