What's a mun exactly? =OI like that one. we in the valleys use it all the time
it's knackered mun!
Rickety is valid english and works in the context, but would rarely be used. This is a thesaurus entry but again I don't know anyone who would use most of those words. More than one word would be used to describe the state of the bicycle such as "its on its way out". This would refer to the fact that it would soon be unusable."Careful, the bike's rickety" then? (Never heard of it though.)
I wouldn't say so because it's used in lots of places/regions. It's not proper etiquette really but is very much used.If you use this in a valley, is not more of a countryside dialect?
The Valleys is nickname for South Wales and mun is Welsh word and means a few things. From a quick research it used to mean Woman or Maid, but now means mate, pal or man (as the American hey man, that was a cool show). So therefore it = it's knackered man!What's a mun exactly? =O

Best description for it here, though I would say it's purely dialect and doesnt mean anything.The Valleys is nickname for South Wales and mun is Welsh word and means a few things. From a quick research it used to mean Woman or Maid, but now means mate, pal or man (as the American hey man, that was a cool show). So therefore it = it's knackered man
Means the same thing here mateHave I already said what buggered means?
If I haven't it's like got 1000 uses, from another word for knackered to replacing some strong language. Just don't ask the English or Americans for what it's really meant to be slang for, it's an entirely different word to them
That first one would just be called elbowing.Hui, it's been a while. But I've got two new ones~
Imagine there is a lecture or something you are not supposed to talk. Somebody's now listening and the person uses their elbow to poke at that person to pull attaction to them. How's that gesture called? Just ellbow poking?
The other one:
Imagine you have very dry skin. (Or some fungi disease on it.) So dry it's hardening up and then it rips open and you have quite a rip/tore. Kind of shapped like the rifts after an earthquake. What's that called, when you get those not-necessarily-bleeding-wounds on your dry skin?
have you heard of a spiral staircase? it "loops" downwards - a spiral. It escapes me what the bridges are actually called but loops go back in on themselves, like you thought of 8, those are more like spirals as there is somewhere to goI always thought of loops like shaped in the 8. Something you can't escape from. So a loop is a loop as long you can go back to where you start even if there is a way out?
So a bridge like this:
China: Haus steht mitten auf der Straße
Autobahn & Shanghai - Fotografie Steffen Schnur | Huangpu Fluss
would also be loops?
