If an Irish person said to you, “Gimmie that yoke,” would you think they were talking about an egg?
If an Irish person said to you, “Gimmie that yoke,” would you think they were talking about an egg? If so, 99% of the time, you’d be wrong. How about banjaxed, bockety or craic? Any idea what they mean?
The Little Book of Irishisms is for anyone who wants to understand the Irish, not just how we speak our version of English, but how we are as people, relaxed about some things, picky about others. It’s also for those who’d like to sound Irish, even just for St. Patrick’s Day. An ambitious goal. But why not “give it a lash for the craic?”
