5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading., 2 Nov. 2003
This review is from: The Meaning of Liff (Paperback)
First read the original version on the York to London train in April 1984, and by Stevenage was reading it aloud to my half of the carriage. My four children have been brought up on scullets, duddos, aboynes, goosnarge, kent expressions and, of course, clixbys. I have frequently been threatened with matricide for being exessively spreakly, but have never been accused of a ditherington. My husband has a fondness for my budbys, and has had consirable experience of poonas. I've had plenty of episodes of silesia, been occasionally duntish after being extremely solent, endured many a hoylake, committed the occasional hidcote bartram and have often been observed kelling. I'm also very adept at losing things in fiunaries. Anyone who understands some - or most of this - is at least as sad as I am, but probably, also like me, has more fun in life than many people.. Now have a copy of the Deeper Meaning, but haven't learned as many new words now my family have grown & flown. I still think a runcorn could be an athletes affliction, slimbridge a dieter's scales, and saundersfoot the irritating tapping made someone who is enjoying the sort of music you can't stand! Maybe they'll be an Even Deeper Meaning of Liff?

Nearly seven years since you wrote it and I've just read it! What a fab review - and I absolutely agree with you.

I have just started a website www.themeaningofliff.com dedicated to the book(s) and already building on the archive started by Doug and John :o) It's wonderful how many people are on the same wavelength.

I'd love to include your new "Liffs" - Runcorn, Slimbridge etc. plus any others you may have. If on the slightest off chance you read this, please contact me on simon@themeaningofliff.com

Many thanks
Simon Tilley

What an absolutely excellent review.
Only just read it. The internet is very slow in this part of Shropshire.
