Here is a list of the phrases we covered in this week's little Jèrriais lesson on BBC Jersey (Monday after 6pm). Geraint's absence provided the theme...
Comme est qu' tu'es? = How are you?
Coumme eune pouque mouoillie = like a wet bag
J'sis pouôrrement aniet = I am poorly today
Geraint n'a fait qué d'toûtre la niet pâssée = Geraint has done nothing but cough last night
Il est à toûtre coumme eune canne câssée = He is coughing like a broken jug
Ah, sécours, tchi toûss'sie! Prend don tchiquechose! = Oh, heavens, what coughing! Take something for it!
Ch'est un toûssoteux tchi toûssote pouor qué nou l'ouaie v'nîn = He's a light cougher who ahems (coughs lightly) so that you can hear him coming
