Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A truce term is a word or short phrase accepted within a community of children as an effective way of calling for a temporary respite or truce during a game or activity. Common examples in English speaking cultures are barley, fainites, crosses and kings in the United Kingdom, pegs and nibs in New Zealand and variants of barley in Australia. In the United States, terms based on time-out have, from the 1950s onwards, largely supplanted earlier common terms based on kings exe. Since the late 1980s time-out has been recorded in other English speaking cultures besides the US. Examples of use of truce terms are if a child has a stitch or wants to raise a point on the rules of the game.show more
