Kimberlin (n.) - Portland dialect for a person from Weymouth, or by extension a person not belonging to the Isle of Portland. Stranger, outsider, foreigner. / k’ɪmbɜ:lɪn /
“I’m on Portland where they’ve found what appears to be an underground cinema, in one of the many caves that run under this island, but it’s a bit of a mystery because nobody knows why it’s here or who created it…”
Duncan Sleightholme reporting from Portland, Dorset
