I was talking about colloquialisms the other day and it made me think of words that originate in Llanelli and the surrounding West Wales areas. There must be lots. Can anyone add to this list:

Shant - beer
Bei - friend
Chillsed - drunk
Bonsch - good friend
Clecs - Gossip
Raxed - Broken

My favourite that one, I remember being surprised that people I met didn't know what my togs were. Being young I assumed it was UK slang.

Is calling trainers - daps a Welsh think or is that Llanelli as well?

Clecs is more widespread than just Llanelli, with 'cario clecs' meaning to tell on someone (or 'rat them off' if you prefer!).

Have you noticed that Llanelli people live in Greenaway Street and walk through Vaux----Hall on their way to Witherspoons? LOL

In general an outstanding example of something.  It could be an object of beauty like a marble ( for playing with ) or a brilliant kick to touch or a magnificent shot at cricket etc
