Thread Name: Lyr Add: The Twang Man
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: The Twang Man
In northern England, a century or so earlier, a twangy man would be a tailor or a seller of cheap clothing and alterations (Many other meanings as well). Variation in slang from one area to another makes the language a "puzzlement" to the outsider.
