Speaking Bristol

Filed under: Lists, Random stuff - uncategorisable — chriscroft @ 9:44 pm

The Bristolians add an L to some words ending in vowels (including Bristow, the original name for their city!) – here are my favourites:

Bananal
Cinemal

Agendal

Lasagna

My Auntie Ednal

Indial

Asdal
Ideal
Majorcal
Ibizal
Abracadabral
Did you know that Africal is a very malarial areal?
Operal
Opral Winfrey and President Obamal
Cameral
Ford Fiestal, Cortinal, Sierral, and Granadal
Diarrheal
Americal
Cappuchinol
Madonnal
Dilemmal
Studiol
Saunal
Yogal
Tripadvisal
Wearing a burkal
these are my two daughters Eval and Normal
Flymol
Panoramal
Tunal
Pizzal (or would this be pizzarr?)
Spaghetti Carbonaral
Potatol
Wisterial
The Eurol
By the way, not knocking Bristol, it’s a great city, I lived there for 7 years and loved it.
Just never quite got my head around the adding of the L, that’s all….

PS
Once my wife and I were walking on the cliffs and looked down to the beach where someone had written, in stones, “Gert Stonkers”. Hilarious, though I never knew if it was male or female protuberances, to this day I still wonder, but also chuckle anyway…
