    Question Word query

    Hi all,
    I was wondering where the word "oller" as in the expression "the bombed oller" came from. We always shorten words here in L'pool but I cant think what oller is short for. Anyone know?

    It came from the saying Hallowed Ground. This was usually wasteland owned by the church.

    Welcome Isni. I'm more interested in your name, where did that come from.

    I think Zap is right on the Hallowed Ground. Heard that before.

    Oller short for Holler ie when you talked loudly in the empty space it sounded like it was amplified hence Holler meaning loudly.
