Eeshogel — Things in Scots #14 and A Photo a Week Challenge: Ice, Ice Baby

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 and hear her post), and we’ll be posting mostly daily — Things in Scots (great title eh? πŸ˜‚).

A 2fer today; Eeshogel (icicle) is today’s Things in Scots as well as my entry for Nancy Merrill’s Challenge: Ice, Ice Baby. Other words for icicle are ice-tangle, shockle, and bobantilter in Caithness.

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 πŸ€”, please let us know!

Hae a guid day 😁
