You know how some people say things like "lass" and "lad" and "righto chaps"..


What dialect is this? And what are some more examples.

WRONG.

The only reason it exists is because drugs get people fucked up, and people love getting fucked up.

Laddie and Lassie are more broad Scots. Lad and Lass are just a general celtic thing or so I believe.

methinks it's probably descended from gallic, since lad and lass are quite common scottish and irish phrases

i might be wrong but that would make the most sense to me

No, just England.

There are no more English speaking European countries unless it's as a second language, and they won't say any of those things.

It's British. More commonly associated with certain regions and the Gaelic countries, but all over it isn't uncommon.

It's from the UK. Usually I'd make the distinction between the 4 countries, but it's present in particular reasons of each one.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.

Yes, England. England is the only English speaking country in Europe...


Em, I thought it was generally a Scottish thing, although I've heard geordies (people from Newcastle) say it as well. Can't think of any particular examples off the top of my head, but I'm sure there's a few, we do speak a bit weird up here

"lad" is british, not just scottish, but "lass" is found most commonly in scotland. "lad" means "boy" and "lass" means "girl".

"chaps" is an english expression. it means "guys", as in "hey guys, look what i found in the gutter today....."

Lad and Lass?

North and west Britain. Don't get none of that in the south east.

"righto chaps"
Is never actually used.

Totally. You can't go anywhere in Europe these days, without being called a lad or chap.
