Quakerspeak

I will explore the mysteries of ‘quaker speak’ or plain speaking (and maybe plain dress – this link to ‘Quaker Jane’ is great fun and has much to provoke thought including another Quaker Glossary) here soonish but in the meantime, follow the links (above) and see QuakerSpeak-Online here and the Quaker Jargon Buster here. (The latter for a quick fix and the former for a comprehensive guide to quaker vocabulary, abbreviations and blasts from the past).

Did you know the Quaker drug of choice is Tea, but the avant‑garde may drink coffee or even alcohol in moderation?

Seen in Edinburgh: ‘Moderation in all things, especially moderation’
