clart

Definition

Slang

  • noun trouble, a mess. This dialect term from the north of England and Scotland – probably a variant of ‘clot’ or ‘clod’ (of mud, slime, excrement) – is heard occasionally in other parts of Britain, usually in expressions such as ‘too much faff and clart’ or ‘(dropped) in the clarts’. ‘Clarty’, the dialect adjective meaning dirty, sticky and messy, is also still heard.
