GUEST,Sol Lyr Add: The Portree Kid, which version? (31) RE: Lyr Add: The Portree Kid, which version? 28 Jan 19

Re. Micca's post. I've always understood that'a teuchter' (pronounced 'choochter' - the 'ch' as in 'loch')is someone who resides in the countryside. i.e. not a city or town dweller. (N. Americans would say 'someone from the Boondocks')
The Portreeve Kid is riddled with Scots words that non-Scots might not grasp. e.g.
Cowped = spilled or knocked over.
Nyaff = dislikeable common person
Gub = to strike someone on the face.
