GUEST,Mandoleer Yan Tan Tethera - more words in the count? (95* d) RE: Yan Tan Tethera - more words in the count? 14 Dec 06


Here's a Lancashire version: Yan, tan, tethera, methera, pimp, teezar, leezar, cattera, horna, dik, yandik, tandik, tetherdik, bumpit, yan-a-bumpit, tan-a-bumpit, tethera-bumpit, methera-bumpit, jigot. Interesting point about the connection with Welsh is that Modern Welsh counts to 15 and then adds one, two, etc, like the bumpit here, but Old Welsh didn't. Off the wall idea - you can count to 15 with fingers and toes without falling over.....
