Streel – Newfoundland and Labrador Language Lessons


Streel is someone who looks like they haven’t taken the time to… how do I say this… dress themselves properly. Or comb their hair, or anything really. They look like they just got out of bed and they rolled out of the house, and they’re walking wherever and you can spot them a mile away.
