    Hold yew hard, bor.

    Quellen

    Aus der Einleitung zu Neil R. Storey, 'Norfolk. A ghosthunter's guide'. Newbury, Berkshire, 2007:


    Add in the number of white ladies, lantern men, ghosts, shades and poltergeists reported from Norfolk over the years and nowhere else comes close. The trouble is that in many cases these spirits have no clear history beyond a brief mention in the folklore of the district. This could be attributed to the reaction of most true sons of Norfolk who, typically, have no truck with ghosts, or at least that might be the first impression a stranger to the county gets; hence in many ghost books other counties seem to have a preponderance of paranormal activity.


    But, as we say in these parts, 'Hold yew hard, bor.' I have often found when researching some of the darker aspects of the county's history that just below the surface, in the more dusty boxes or volumes, there is plenty of material for the paranormal investigator. (Hervorhebung von mir)

    Ich kann aus dem Zusammenhang ungefähr erraten, was das heißt, aber weiß es jemand genau? Danke schon mal!

    "hold yew hard" = "hold you hard" = "wait a moment," "hang on"

    "bor" = "boy," "neighbor"
