    'ere

    Today when surfing the web I came across the following sentence :

    "I've just come home, after rushing out to see the movie on impulse (last chance in this 'ere town, it comes off on Thursday). "

    None of my dictionary has an entry of 'ere, so I guess it's either a typo or some sort of old English.
    Am I on the right track?

    Thank you for taking time answering my question.

    Re: 'ere

    It's a colloquial form of 'here'. In the UK, you will hear people saying (and writing) "this 'ere"- it just means 'this', but is meant to be jocular.
