Dictionnaire Jersiais-Français contcheint un amas d’entrées tchi connaîssent la caûque-souothis ou f’thaient rithe les cats. Dans chutte séthie, j’en présentons en Angliais tchiqu’s’eunes d’întéthêt.
A series of out-of-the-ordinary entries translated from the Dictionnaire Jersiais-Français.

hâte, n.f. = F. In haste, in all haste. Do something in haste. Hasten to go, to do, to say, etc. If they were where I am now, they wouldn’t be in such great haste to be here! – that’s what the married woman says when speaking of girls seeking to get married. One also says to hasten, when one is in a hurry to relieve oneself. We could see that the poor child needed to go urgently. Need to go, to piss, to have a crap, begging your pardon. When one needs to spend a penny urgently one might sometimes say that my back teeth are underwater!
