Meaning of dollar

dollar means: slang for money, commonly used in singular form, eg., 'Got any dollar?..'. In earlier times a dollar was slang for an English Crown, five shillings (5/-). From the 1900s in England and so called because the coin was similar in appearance and size to the American dollar coin, and at one time similar in value too. Brewer's dictionary of 1870 says that the American dollar is '..in English money a little more than four shillings..'. That's about 20p. The word dollar is originally derived from German 'Thaler', and earlier from Low German 'dahler', meaning a valley (from which we also got the word 'dale'). The connection with coinage is that the Counts of Schlick in the late 1400s mined silver from 'Joachim's Thal' (Joachim's Valley), from which was minted the silver ounce coins called Joachim's Thalers, which became standard coinage in that region of what would now be Germany. All later generic versions of the coins were called 'Thalers'. An 'oxford' was cockney rhyming slang for five shillings (5/-) based on the dollar rhyming slang: 'oxford scholar'.

Meaning of caser/case

caser/case means: five shillings (5/-), a crown coin. Seems to have surfaced first as caser in Australia in the mid-1800s from the Yiddish (Jewish European/Hebrew dialect) kesef meaning silver, where (in Australia) it also meant a five year prison term. Caser was slang also for a US dollar coin, and the US/Autralian slang logically transferred to English, either or all because of the reference to silver coin, dollar slang for a crown, or the comparable value, as was.

Meaning of townie

townie means: Similar in definition to Chatham Chav, Kappa Slappa, Essex Girl, Shazza etc. They are girls who wear reebok trainers, kappa-sportswear, white puffa jackets, clowns (a really foul type of jewellery which involves a gold, jewelled, preferably moveable, clown (yes, a clown), the bigger the better hanging off a gold chain), lots of reeeeeally tacky 'Ratners' style gold jewellery and hair which can be any of the following hairstyles - plastered to head with a small thin section curled and styled with half a tub of gel and forced to hang next to face; the pineapple (hair in pony tail right on top of head) or extravagant bun (very long hair twisted into an overexaggerated bun) - all of these hairstyles MUST use a gold scrunchie and as much gel as is humanly possible. These girls normally get pregnant by the age of 12 and have boyfriends called Gazza and Kevin. I know you've seen them walking down the street - sadly, everyone has had the misfortune at some time of their life. (ed: now that's what I call a definition!) Talking of definitions, we received this... and I forgot to note who sent it (sorry): I was surprised this one wasn't in the dictionary already. (ed: which it was of course... but never mind the technicalities). I first came accross the word in the early nineties when I was 10-15 years old. We used it to mean exactly the definition you have listed for 'scally'. At some point, perhaps around 1995, 1996 using the word 'townie' went out of fashion and people gradually began to use 'scally' all the time. Today, in the area I come from (Manchester, but esp. South Manchester) you wouldn never hear 'townie' used in this sense, always 'scally'. I have a friend at university who still uses it as we would've done in Manchester in the early nineties. She's from North Yorkshire and says it's still used a lot there. Further still, another university friend, from London, says that to him it means something different from 'scally' and always has done. I'm not quite certain of his definition but he may say, for example, "I don't like going out in Leeds on a Saturday night because it's full of townies" - meaning more like the general 'locals' of any social class, age, dress-style., Sorry for the lengthy explanation! What fascinates me most about this word is the way it was used consistently by people in the area I lived in when I was a younger teenager and then suddenly, within about a year, everyone was using 'scally' instead and 'townie' had become an almost uncool thing to say. I remember thinking to myself - I must start trying to say 'scally' instead of 'townie' so that I sound cool. It's been suggested I pass you on to this url for a fuller description of the phenomenon: http://www.geocities.com/chatham_girls/home.htm
