  • I remember in the early days of my schooling we learnt to use brang instead of brought in a certain tense, but I can't seem to recall what that tense was. Comparing both words on Wordnik (where else would I go?? ;-) ) I can only find that brang is 'dialect, colloquial, informal'...

  • Brang brang brang went the trolley,
    bing bing bing went the bell,
    zu zu zu went my hamstrings
    as I tripped, wobbled, swayed, and then fell...

  • Could be onomatopoeia for something.

  • for-Zuth Ruzuzu, we will follow your clue with some ado. Please start the lasting, listing with some hope of not gettin' lost(in) it?! It will be an open list with no hopes of closure but only closuring upon which it cloth(es)ure depins, for sure (far shure). Let it be brang forth and be a nifty fifith!

    Perhaps and only perhaps it may be called 'reasonin' seasonin''

  • Go fagure? Why aren't fatch?, guve?, pliy?, stirt?, edose?, driw worthy, worth-whiling words?

  • Well... okay... that's a good point. The funny part for me is that brang seems perfectly reasonable, but brung sounds like what folks to the south might say. Must just be what I grew up with.

  • Bring, brang, brung.

  • And why isn't brang a word?
