Hi all 😁 and welcome to December’s project: Things in Scots. This month I am collaborating with my wife, Susan (☜ follow this link to see her post), and we’ll be posting daily — Things in Scots (great title eh? 😂).
We’ve all seen these growing about the place — breer (wild rose).
All the Scots words for these posts are taken from The Concise English-Scots Dictionary, by the Scottish National Dictionary Association. The words chosen will be the generally accepted term, but as in all languages there are regional variations, as well as sub-species variations. For example, an owl is generally known as a hoolet in Scots, but an ool in Shetland & the NE. A barn owl is a white hoolet & a long eared owl, a hornnie hoolet.
As we do these posts, we’re learning as well; so we apologise in advance for any mistakes ☺️
If any of you out there have a burning desire to know the Scots word for anything 🤔, please let us know!
Hae a guid day 😁
