Daps and cwpee!!

Posted by Vickie Ricketts on April 04, 2000

We were having a discussion about Bristolian words at work, and someone asked where the word Daps comes from (as in trainers, runners etc). Does anyone know?

Also, I confuse many people outside (and some inside!) of Bristol by saying "Cwpee down" (I have no idea how to spell the first word, but someone said it may originate from Wales) meaning bend/crouch down. Anyone any ideas on this one?!
