To start with, we asked our Facebook audience to come up with some words that you can only find in the county.
There was a great reaction and plenty of suggestions made, although not all of them were strictly Sussex-only words and phrases!
The most popular word mentioned by numerous people was Twitten, which, as many seemed to know, is a narrow path between two walls or hedges (and a word still used).
From the various suggestions provided, we have selected ten of the most interesting words.
Our language is an ever-changing one, so we were happy to hear from one reader who suggested Dandydills (for daffodils) - not an old word as far as we are aware, but worth including from her four-year-old (born and bred in Sussex)!
1 Fret - a sea fog
2 Spadger - sparrow
3 Dinlow - idiot
4 Boffle - a mistake
5 Jiggered - had enough
6 Kiddy - friend or workmate
7 Snags - snails
8 Somewhen - sometime
9 Went (or wentways) - crossroads
10 Mung - to have a look around
