Twenty-two Manx words have been added to the Oxford English Dictionary in it's latest update.
Isle of Man natives and organisations, including the Manx National Heritage Library, worked to identify words and phrases that are characteristic of English as spoken on the Island.
Now, the words, compounds and phrases will take their place in the latest updated dictionary.
Words inclue hop tu naa, which is celebrated on the 31st October by children signing songs door-to-door and the display of lanterns carved from turnips.
There's also phynnodderee, a supernatural being characterised by its thick coat of hair. Although, you're far more likely to encounter the loaghtan, a breed of small sheep that originates on the island.
Wherever you are on the island, there’s always traa dy lioor - 'time enough' - for a skeet a word that can mean gossip as well as a peek or quick look.
