    Mardy

    Post by Campbell Brodie on Sat 11 Feb 2017 - 9:17

    Mardy: Mardy was originally recorded in Sheffield and Yorkshire in the 1890s. The idea came from a marred, or spoilt, child, who would then misbehave and be grumpy and sulky.

    We call it "dour" ..."The Oxford Dictionary defines it as someone who is “relentlessly severe, stern, or gloomy in manner or appearance.” It can also refer to someone who is stubborn or obstinate. The word has Scottish origins too, coming from the Gaelic word dúr."
