Myself: Sometimes confused (wrongly) with Missef, which isn't a real word. Those people look at Yissef
and think they can put it in the first person.
I'm gonna go make meself some lunch
Coloq. : Are You?
From the word Yis
I'yis comin wi' us?
(Are you coming with us?)
Describing something as good enough for the Pope; Describing something as to have Papal status or Abilities; Describing something as being the best around.
Originating from the Ozy and Millie cartoon strip on 5th April, 1999 (www.ozyandmillie.org/1999/om19990405.html)
which was commenting on the social taboo
becomming a thing of the past.
"Hi, I'm the Pope! You know, when I'm cruising along in my Popemobile, nothing refreshes me like a cold, Kablammo Soda! Mmm...it's Papariffic!"
Coloq: Going To
Usually coupled with "Am Gunnae" or "I'yis Gunnae"
I'yis gunnae come to the match?
(Are you going to come to the match?)
Contraction of "Thank you"
(The "n" sound is made at the back of the throat, like a grunt of acknowledgement, mostly heard from teenage boys.)
The bus driver stops a bit earlier than you asked to be helpful
As you leave the bus, you acknowledge this small favour with "'n'Q", because it is not enough to merit a "Thanks" or a "Thankyou" without sounding like you see it as a life changing action.
Extreme contraction of "Thank you", derived from "'n'Q"
Jim drops a tea towel whilst cooking dinner
Tim: I'll get that for you
Coupled with Gunnae
, because "I'm Gunnae" sounds wrong.
Probably from Desperate Dan (Dandy), who says "Ahm" for "I'm"
Am gunnae go make meself some lunch
