Thread Name: Epithet for English Immigrants in Song?
Subject: RE: Epithet for English Immigrants in Song?
I live in RI. Dad was a jicky; mom was a frog. Their families got along, and the terms were used with affection, but I think I was told not to use them outside our families because others might not understand. It seems every nationality had a nickname that could by used with affection or scorn.
