    My mother's family are Geordies, I grew up with two of them. They don't use that word in that way. "Gannin'", yes that's a Geordie, erm, thing.

    Over o'er owa take your pick.

    It's just a graphic representation of a spoken word.

    Howay man, of course they do! They mightn't ordinarily *write* it – but they certainly speak it! Jesus – if I was to write how I speak, I doubt anybody here would understand me :) !!!!

    You British people make no sense.

    "gannin' oe'r me marra's", wth does that even mean? Just say relic'd, it's much simpler.

    Relic'd, that's how I would spell it. Of course there is no real way of writing a fake word!

    It's a made up language, much like the word relic. Aye?

    A lot of dialect is just pronunciation differences of common words but a lot of dialect words and phrases are regional.

    Example: shard of wood that sticks in your finger.

    English: splinter
    Scots: skelf
    Geordie: spelk

    It's all dying out though as the world becomes more homogenised with travel and t'internet

    Interesting – I'd never heard of that, I'm not terrible at accents – and I used to do a not-terrible Geordie (Jawdi) accent! That is something our American friends might not know – now... I can only speak with regards to Ireland – but I know it to be true of the U.K. also – but... there are an absurd amount of dialects and accents on these islands, far more than you might think – and they've evolved very uniquely, often you could have two distinct accents within a hundred mile radius!

    The antiquing thing came after. It had been called "distressing". I used to old oak dressers with chains to "distress" them for the customers of the dealer I worked for.

    Either word, depending on your whole opinion of performing that action on a guitar, would be suitable and avoid silly arguments over which of 3 says to spell a word that ain't a word to communicate something all 3 spellings do equally well.

    But then what we all do here all day on ST with nothing dopey to argue about?

    Honestly, I find it more concerning that every day on multiple guitar forums, the word tremolo is seldom, if ever, spelled correctly. :rolleyes:

    Yep. We're going with it.

    There are als plenty of languages where the symbol known as " ' " signifies what called a glottal stop, as in Hawai'i.

    Like, that's the beauty of symbols. Everything is
    mutable. We like to use dictionaries and the like to anchor our illusions in some kind of fixity, but let's not be fundamentalists in the making.

    Now if you'll excuse me, I have a guitar to go lick over and over again.
