Straight from Latin:

funis = rope, ambulare = to walk
Ebrybloody kno that it’s a person what make fun out ov hospitle veyiklz.
Did he/she have a lifeline?
hmm a word I use every day
I don;t think that is so unusual.

I write for a living and I consider myself above average in terms of being well-read, and it's a term I have never heard of - but then, it's hardly something that crops up in everyday conversation is it?

Hand on heart - without looking it up - do you know what an Alnager* does?

And again - if you live outside this area, you wouldn't know what a

Sagger Maker's Bottom Knocker

does - but if you asked ten people over the age of sixty in my town, nine of them could tell you.

It's just about what you come across in your life, it's no indication of intelligence - or qualification to teach.

I’m with TTT here.
AH, // I consider myself above average in terms of being well-read//

Just out of interest what do you consider qualifies you to claim you are above average in terms of being well-read?
Because he told us.
I'm not above anything and would have known the answer but it's not one a teacher would use every day.

My Mother used to delight in teaching us slightly unusual words.

She told us my Grandma had worked for a Tonsorial artist, which was perfectly true.
It's Saggar Maker
