BRITISH CULTURE
"TERMS OF ENDEARMENT." If you are woman and a man serves you in a shop and calls you "love" don't worry, you aren't being propositioned, he is just being friendly. If you are a man, he may well call you "mate," "guv" or "squire" depending on where in the British Isles you actually are. Women can address men and women equally by whatever the local variant is, whereas men will have gender-specific terms (NO way would he call another man "love!") There are many regional "terms of endearment" and I have tried to discover as many as I can - I will add to this table as and when I get information :


Region/county
Term - female
Term - male
Yorkshire
love (pronounced luv)
mate
Lancashire
chuck
?
Derby
me duck (pron. miduck)
?
Nottingham
duck
?
Birmingham
bab
kid
Tyneside
hinny, hin
pal
Scotland (Glasgow)
hen, pet
Jimmy(?)
Scotland (Inverness)
wifie (to married women)
?
West Sussex / Hampshire
m'dear, me luvverrrr
?

What about London?
"In London we don't get called anything like that. If you are spoken to at all - sometimes a shop assistant will just look at you and say "yes" - it could well be just a "can I help you?" Londoners always seem to be rushing about so don't make time to address people properly. We must seem very "cold" to people from the north."
