I learned some even better words and phrases in the Marines and as a cop but I won't use them here and only amongst a select few:whistle:
I grew up on a council estate in the UK difficult to describe to an American but lets say not the best environment for people to live and joined the military myself. My vernacular can be quite choice and varied and as an Englishman we use the the C word as a term of endearment. However my wife who in public and work environments is prim and proper put me to shame at home :lol:

Very understandable. I married the "farmers daughter" (a whole lot of joke possibilities here in the US of A over that) and occasionally Judi surprises me with her colorful vernacular (not often but it has happened)

To be fair i should have said in the UK its a term of endearment lol. As for the Belfast accent i deal with a bloke originally from from there and as you say the infliction can vary. My accents more niche I'm a potter (Stoke-on-Trent)so we are north midlands but sound nothing like the mentally afflicted brummies or yamyams from Stafford downwards and nothing like the Mancs or Scousers above us.

This is my local dialect Dialects - Potteries - Stoke-on-Trent i havent heard it on Britbox yet lol. Its dying a little bit but the term Duck is used here like water round a boat its great in the new gender fluid society as here men, women, young old and all creeds and colours are called Duck.

Potteries, lol.

I always use subtitles when watching any movies or shows made outside of the Midwest. It's either dialect I don't get or lazy word pronunciation.

Oh. I learned a few choice cuss words in Boy Scouts in the 70s, but got the master class while in the US Navy in the 80s. Some salty sailors really excelled in hyphenated curse words, phrases, run on sentences and long paragraphs of profanity. I swear some of those squids were breathing in through their nose while continuously spewing the filth.
