Bluenoser’s Book of Slang


Nova Scotia is blessed with a rich language. It is literally littered with words and expressions that vary from county to county, and town to town. From a dog’s breakfast, to blowin’ a gale, bed lunch, giv’er, fill yer boots, dough funkers, back-ass-wards and right some good, Nova Scotia Slang will introduce you to a whole new language.

– You describe that really bad smell in your basement as being fowsty.
– Your kid is acting like a fart in a mitten.
– Someone calls you a hard-looking ticket and you know exactly what they’re talking about.
– You are experiencing a severe case of the flying axe handles this morning.
– You ask your visitors, “Jeet yet?”
