    Hallo! I'm just seeking some help in writing my postgraduate report! And i'd greatly appreciate if you could spare a minute and say what associations you have with the following words:
    hully gully
    jitterbug
    boogie
    paradiddle
    pataflafla
    swiss kick
    chuchutta
    jive
    flim flam tap
    Do these words bear positive or negative meaning? how do you use them in sentences?
    THANX A LOT

    Er, I'm not sure the WP support forum is the appropriate place to be posting this.

    What a fantastic post Janeal! I've never used any of the words in any sentence ever!! And most of them I've never seen before and don't even understand! I find your post very surreal!! You gave me a great laugh!! Thanks :-)

    English is not my first language.. But still.. Pataflafla?!! Flim flam tap?!! LOL!! Now I'm laughing again!!

    Jitterbug? A kind of dance they did around wartime, as in "we did the jitterbug"
    Boogie - dance, as in "to have a boogie"
    Paradiddle - a type of movement used in drumming
    Jive - dance
    Flim flam tap - more drumming movements

    I'm intrigued as to why you want to know all this though!
