I have 2 brilliant words nobody knows about. They are probably worth about £1000 each. But you can have them for free.
They are:
1. Bourdoun-aus Boarding house.
2. Mboumbli-kaus Public house (mbyraria to this generation, which sounds to me like such a boring word)

These 2 words are classic. They are not used anymore. They were used by my dad and other Greek Cypriots who came to England in 1933.

Two lesser great words, but still interesting are....
1. Begging powder Baking powder
2. Tapo dryer Tumble dryer

Other words you may wish to include into your GrEnglish dictionary are.....
Lavadori Toilet(Lavatory)
Fishbury Park Finsbury Park
CamTen Down Camden Town
Caledodonia Caledonian rd
Wimblidon Wimbledon & Wembley

Also when i was little all names were anglicised .......
