I got 10 :!:

Started me thinking . . . Dangerous, I know, but . . .

How about some words, sayings Etc. that were used by your parents or grandparents, that are no longer in common use?

I'll start -
Gravit - Scarf
Doosk - Cap or bunnet

Any more?

I got 6, not bad as a third language.

Yorkshire being my first language, and I have a smattering of English too.
