    Terms of Endearment

    In Staffordshire and the West Midlands both men and women use the term 'duck' when speaking to another person irrespective of their sex".

    Shocking at first but it's now becoming endearing to me compared to the term "mate". So I will call my Filipino family & friends "hellow duck" lols! I bet I will have a lot of backslapping if they are here.

    How about in your area. Do you have any funny/ peculiar/ unique terms of endearment aside from flower, honey, love...?"

    C'mon duckies, spit it out!
    If you can't say something nice. SHUT UP!. Simple.

    My original hometown is Pontefract in West Yorkshire, and 'cock' was a very common form of greeting there.
    Very common anywhere between Sheffield/BarnsleyWakefield/Pontefract area.

    Remember Charlie Williams the comedian ? (from Upton near Ponte')...always used that expression as well as 'Flower'.

    In Glasgow - where I was born - it's "hen" ... as in:

    "Haw, hen ... howzitt gaun?" ("Hello, dear ... how ARE you?")

    Alternatively, when introducing oneself to others:

    "Ah'm Ina ... Isa's china!" ("I'm Ina ... Isa's friend!")

    - from which, it may be deduced that the former is a customary term of endearment (usually ... though not exclusively!) used by the male on addressing a member of the "fairer" sex - while the latter can just as easily be utilised by a female when announcing her own presence to another person of the same gender.

    So ... ducks ... hens ... whatever ... ... maybe that would explain WHY women are often [derogatorily] referred to as "birds"!!!
