GUEST,Murray on Saltspring Glossary of Scottish Words (PermaThread) (46) RE: Glossary of Scottish Words 15 Apr 00


Good work, but I'm puzzled by the inclusion of things like "leak, seem, send, sent" which are not Scotticisms. Also: "cloot" represents the English "clout" (pr. clowt), = cloth; while "clout" (pr. clowt) = blow, hit, strike etc. "Dang " is the preterite of "ding", so = "struck", "belted" you might say. "Ding" however means more than "strike"; as in the phrase (motto) "Dunse dings a'," it means "surpasses", "beats" in the metaphorical sense. More comments maybe once I digest this. But it's a real accomplishment all the same.
