Wasson my bewtys? I have a question.


Best Answer John Richmond , 2 weeks ago

Wasson = What's on

Bewtys = Beauties

Bleddy = Bloody

ansum = Handsome

 

Cornish / West Devon dialect of English.  And, no, we don't all talk like this down here.  Unless we feel like it.

Thank you, yes, I got all that.

Not hard at all.

Have a look at this one about AAVE. I can recommend the second part.

And m

 

 

 

Wasson my bewtys?

 

 

Is that Gaelic....?????  :huh:

 

Cheers,

Philippe

 

It's definitely not Gaelic - there is no w or y in the Irish language.

 

I think he is saying "what's on my beauties?" - west country English (Cornwall or Devon I think).

 

 

Aha! That's why I don't find those words in my Gaelic dictionary ^_^

For the moment I'm brushing up my Gaelic because I intend to visit Scotland soon and want to be able to communicate with those indigenous people.

 

 

Conas atá tú

Is mise Philippe

An bhfuil Béarla agat?

Ar mhaith leat damhsa liom?

 

So, those few sentences should suffice  <_< 

 

Cheers,

Philippe

 

And most importantly...

Póg mo thóin.  :D  :ph34r:

 

Phil

 

To that, I would reply "Gabh isteach sa seomra folctha agus nigh tú féin-_-

 

Cheers,

Philippe  ;)

 

 

:D  :D  :D

 

It's a normal way to introduce foreigners to the Irish language!
