Or Reason · 4:42pm Nov 21st, 2016

So I've been looking into obscure rhymes recently. Like orange has a hill in Wales called Borenge, porridge has the River Torridge (if you're familiar with Tarka the otter you'll know that one), and silver - chilver (female lamb, the ovine equivalent of filly). Etc.

But this is essentially an addendum to the flanks =/= hindquarters blog, because the rhyme for purple is curple, and that's a name for the hindquarters/rump of a horse or donkey.
