This has been annoying me for quite sometime now, if the people of britain insist on stealing words used in the North-East then at least use them properly!


ginally From The Collins English Dictionary
Noun - A lout, especially a youthful one with a predilection for basball caps and hooded sportswear


Recently the word chav has been being used everywhere, on tv, radio and on just about every street in the country.

BUT YOUR ALL SAYING IT WRONG!!!!!

The word is meant to be CHARV, with an R!

The word came from Charver, which in the North-East means basically the same thing.

A Charvers normal wardrobe would consist of.....

Rockport shoes - A must have for any serious charv
Stripey Henry Lloyd jumpers - another must
Burberry Cap - This must be worn whatever the weather
Berghaus Coat - must be a Merra Peak and be worn even in hot weather!
Huge Collection of real gold rings, necklaces etc


You get my point.

There is also the Charver laungage......

Lendz a tab - Please may i have a cigarette?
Yee wanna pure smack like? - Would you like me to hit you?
HERE YEEEE! Ha yee been shaggin my lass like? - Excuse me, have you been mating with my girlfriend?

The words PURE and PROPER will be added in at random times during a conversation.


Charvers also smoke either Lambert & Butler or Richmond cigarettes which they only ever buy in 10's and must get somebody to go in the shop for them!


So come on Britain.....Use our words properly or dont use them at all!
