Friend or mate. Used in greetings and to show respect to an equal, especially a fellow West Cumbrian.

An 'outsider' addressed as a marra should feel honoured and 'included' in what may be a select group.

Cumbrian word for friend or 'mate'. Originates from the way marrows are grown in a field, lined up next to each other closely, as if they were friends.
