: : What is the meaning and origin of "tara chuck"...we yanks haven't got a clue?

: It means 'good bye, my dear (or any endearment you prefer)'. It is North West of England dialect.


Interesting. I googled the phrase, got lots of examples, but no clue as to origin. Some sort of rhyming slang? Something evolved from a regional accent?
