Yeah, Southend Is That Sort Of Place Now...

Spellcheck is your friend...

Unfortunately, spellcheck is not much of a friend to the many people who think that where is the past tense of the verb to be or that there is a possessive adjective.

Interesting word though.

— And what happened after the assailant took your mobile?
— Well, he stranged me, innit?
— How do you mean, "stranged"?
— Well, he turned his back on me and ignored me, innit? It's not right, innit?

WV backled. Past tense of the verb "to backle", as in "The bastard stranged me so I backled him good and hard."

Have to admit that "stranged" is a new one on me ..

Eee, by 'eck .. tha' certainly lives an' learns 'ere .. ;)

Perhaps "stranged" is yoof-speak for being punched in the face. As in "You look at my ho one more time an' I'm gonna strange ya. Innit."
