You know, I speak it just like that but I find it so hard to understand when reading Razz

Its still quite good though, but as you say Richy, i'm more used to pronouncing the English spellings of things in that way that actually reading Scots!

Its different to Western Scots though. I usually stumble on things like ''ane'' (''wan''... ''one'' in English) or things that end in '''aa'', which I would normally sae ''ae'' Razz

You think that's tough try reading ANYTHING in the Brummie dialect. It's harder than you think!

I'd love to have a go in my best Brummie accent! Very Happy

interestingly, Scots is classified as a seperate language to English by government, and was spoken in the ''lallans'' (And Gaidhlig in the Highlands) before the Kingdoms of England and Scotland joined in 1707. If we were still independant, theres a good chance everything in Scottish media would be written or spoken in Scots. The education authorities of the late 18th century made sure that all over Britain, kids were taught things in English, which has practically killed Gaidhlig in Scotland (apart from a few remote areas) and has caused Scots to be regarded as mere ''slang''.

Its always interesting reading up about these things Smile

Ah've read enough Irvine Welsh tae unnerstaund written Scots a wee bit. For me not trying to follow it and just read quickly is the best way to understand it.

My lady is Scottish and it is like we're speaking different languages at time. My personal favourite words are chankin, oxter, dreich, and bawjaw Smile

The one that bugs me is juice (I know redbeard will back me up here)

This is juice:



This is not:

Aye it is! What do you call it? Razz

Or alternatively its called ''Ginger'', and if you take down some empty ''Ginger Boatles'' or ''Gingies'' to the nearest newsagents, you get 20p Razz

Bawjaws is a personal favourite of mine Smile As well as the classic mother threat to one of her weans: ''all take ma hawn aff yer face!''

No, Irn-Bru is not juice.

It is the nectar of the Gods.

It is paradise canned.

It is perfection given liquid form.

Its 'pop'...pure and simple. On the subject, Aussies call it 'lolly water' which is either funny or just weird depending on who's saying it.

I do love Irn Bru, second only to ginger beer in my books though Wink I am partial to a Jager-Bru too. I've heard gingies/janglers used plenty...does a good job of describing what a crate of them sound like. Is there a Scots word for onomatopoeia? Wink
