: The link below is to a small
site of 'Black Country' sayings. The 'Black Country' is the old industrial heart
of England. Some of the Sayings I recognise as being used well outside that part
of England. Do others use them too?
: NB Please note lack of apostrophies!
(West Virginia/Kentucky) The only one that is familiar to me is "Well, e's took 'is eggs to a fine market, ay 'e?" Only our version is "He drove his geese to a fine market." I think that's how it goes.
