GUEST,DTM Scots words in Flower of Northumberland (20) RE: Scots words in Flower of Northumberland 07 Jan 17


My use of these words are as follows...
Braw = Handsome (in this case)
Hurl = Normally, push (or ride in) say, a barrow. However, in this case though it would mean 'carry'
Ben = as others have said above it means 'through to another room or part of the house' (on the same level).
