I remember one of the places the adventurer Gulliver stopped in his mythical satirical travels was a place called Lilliput, where the people were only a few inches high.
So, you can imagine my amazement when I was researching BritishSpeak to discover that a person who lived in Liverpool was known as a Liverpudlian. I don't know why, but I connected that name with a person who lived in Lilliput.
I have since found several other very interesting names for people who live in other (UK) places. Here are a few, below. Can you name the cities? Ok, so I've already given you the first one. Also, please add any other interesting ones you think of.
What is a Taffy?
What is a Soap Dodger?
What is a Sassenach?
Some of these are starting to get derogatory, so I will stop here. Answers below.
Taffy = Welsh
Soap Dodger = (derogatory) Edinburgh term for Glaswegians
Sessenach = (derogatory) Scotish term for the English.
