  • "me". A variant of the "editorial we" / "royal we". (That is, for example, a monarch saying "We are not amused." to mean "I am not amused.")

    In certain parts of north England, people use the first person plural object pronoun instead of the subject pronoun. Thus, "Give it to us" can mean either "Give it to me" or have the normal grammatical sense.

  • originally pronounced as in valley in place of origin Glasgow, before being distorted by Londoners especially who believed the Scots were actually saying the male name 'Wally', it relates to a tenement stairway, a 'close', that was tiled 'a wally close' pronounced as in valley, and where the more well-off families lived, and who kept their children from playing with the 'roughs' with the consequence that lack of 'playing out' led to less well co-ordinated (less socially skilled as well, therefore) people, 'wallies' (as in valleys).
