    The word "scouse" is a shortened form of "lobscouse", derived from the Norwegian lapskaus and Danish labskovs (or the Low German Labskaus), a word for a meat stew commonly eaten by sailors. In the 19th century, people who commonly ate "scouse" such as local dockers, families and sailors became known as "scousers" especially in the north end of Liverpool and the "Wallasey Pool".

    The Scouse dialect originates from Liverpool.
