Peter, I remember making the ( occasionally painful ) change from 'fainites' to 'barley' as a six-year-old moving from London to Liverpool in the 50's. My mother maintained that it was properly 'fey knights' and had something to do with chivalry. I do recall that once you had said it, at least in my London playground, your status was 'fey'.

Peter Harvey

Thanks Alan. I can see that such a change would be hard but somehow 'fey' is not a word I would ever have associated with you.

Alan Booth

Well, I didn't say it often ....
