El Reg lingo giving you gyp? Do tell...
It's come to our attention (again) that some of our Stateside cousins continue to struggle with El Reg's flavour of the Beloved Mother Tongue™.
We have, of course, in the past published a couple of brief guides to those terms which prove The Register is a fertile breeding ground for neologisms, as well as a treasure house for obscure, and often archaic, Brit lingo.
Indeed, some time back we promised to knock together a rather more comprehensive guide detailing punters, strumpets, geezers, boffins and chavs who might be enjoying a quick twatdangle - something which generally goes titsup - so that world+dog might better follow our world-class IT coverage.
So, if there's anything which caught your eye which you reckon might benefit from a bit of clarification for future generations of readers, stick it in a comment to this piece and we'll add it to the list. Watch this space, me old china plates. ®
