Electricity in English

lecky - Yes that is what it used to be called by old Scousers biddies when they called into my British Gas call centre in Manchester.

Noun. Electricity. Also 'lecko'. E.g. "I'm afraid we can't invite you back, we've had the lecky cut off."

Scousers are Liverpudlians btw :D

'Lecky' is a very South Indian usage as well....that's how a Mallu says 'Lucky' :)
