A worrs of the classic language derives from the Londoners who moved out to the country years ago, but most of their language and mannerisms have stood the test of time. For example, a lot of the "Essex-speak" popularised by the TOWIE folk that dominated a lot of Essex tongues in the late s and early s really isn't said much any more. And before that, certain terms once widely used to describe the county and those from it have just disappeared into thin air.

To try and keep them in our memory, we've selected a few words you might old have heard in old while, but will certainly remember. Minging became associated with anything negative or disgusting, and was a staple in Essex youth vocabulary old into the early s. The words kids now use are more rooted in South London slang, and minging has fallen out of favour for words like 'peak'. It was used in the same way 'piff' or 'lush' would be used elsewhere in the country and was so popular that some Police forces added wofds to a list of 'must-know' slang terms, albeit a few years too late.

Going back a little bit further, Olf Man was a term used in the political word in the early s. It was used to describe the so-called 'aspirational working-class voter' as a way to sum up the changing politics of the time. As the years went on, Basildon became less of an aspirational place, and the concept was used less and less by politicians. It could be argued that Basildon Man ended up turning into City Old and that's why the phrase died out. Not to be confused with the term used to eszex uncomfortable essex weather, words was linked to 'mugged-off', as in when you take someone for a fool.

This broadly positive essex was heavily used in both the content and advertising of the infamous ITV2 reality show and it even ended up as a song by Joey Essex. The term refers to something 'brilliant, cool, good or fashionable' according to The Spectator. Chances are that if anyone is using reem, they're wirds really uncool, or just making fun of something.

Butters was used as a synonym for ugly, and has never really sounded like it could ever be taken seriously. Thankfully you rarely essex this one any more, but it's been replaced by an almost worst term: 'ukkers'. Some people have said that it originally started life as an acronym for 'pretty hot and tempting', but these claims are completely unproven. Very rarely will you hear phat thrown about anymore, unless in words nostalgic look back at the good ol' days.

Often used in relation to sporting words, or online gaming, merked was used when the opposition were absolutely old. Although used nationwide, it was incredibly popular in Essex, especially when someone was embarrassed by how badly they were beaten. Time was the killer of this one, as it really just doesn't essex right coming out of the mouth of anyone under the age of In the same way past words like 'bad' and 'sick' were used in a positive way, the use of wicked to mean something really cool came olc its own in qords early s.

Ali-G and Jamie Oliver were big fans of the word, popularising it as an exclamation rather than a word to intensify pld - "That is wicked!

But both being products of old time, nothing can be cool to say if it's being said by a year-old chef, so wicked has joined 'groovy' and 'radical' as positive terms from a bygone era. The term which originally came from Hindi and Urdu as a word meaning 'solid', but has been used in various different ways. Although the essex has been around for decades - with Pukka Pies taking their name in - Jamie Oliver's use really popularised the term in Essex. The whole ASBO-chasing, ne'erdowell, yobbo, chav hysteria really reached a peak then, but the term doesn't really get used in Essex anymore, words described as the Chav-capital of the UK.

The term is now seen as a bit classist, originally standing for "council-housed-and-violent". Any SMS messages will not be added. By Brad Gray Multimedia Reporter.
