a jaunt, a rambling walk or ride just for the sake of breaking restraint. from the Dictionary of Newfoundland English (University of Toronto Press, 1982). Many of these terms are from the 17th-century and were brought to Newfoundland with the settlers from England (the majority were from Wessex, mainly the counties of Dorset and Devon), and from Ireland (the majority were from a 30-mile radius of the city of Waterford). These terms survived here in Newfoundland after falling out of use in their original countries.
