6. Blimey, blimey O'Reilly, cor blimey, gorblimey
One of the most stereotypically English expressions ever.
An expression of shock or surprise.
An unpleasant person regarded with pity, contempt, or envy.
Can be used for someone you feel sorry for – “the poor blighter” – or someone you hate – “that blighter.”
A word used to intensify language, similar to the American goddamn.
Ex. That bloody blighter pissed me off!
A milder, more archaic variation of bloody. You can use it all you want, but you’ll also risk sounding like you dropped right out of My Fair Lady.
Also, something unbelievable or stupid – an expression of disbelief.
