Fun Scottish translation
some scottish words translated
Although in Scotland we do speak English, we have many different regional dialects,which we have used to change some parts of the English language to what you could call Scottish-English.
below you will find a small selection of Scottish words and a brief translation to English,
aww = all : as in aww the kings horses.
aboot = about: as in this story is aboot.
ah = I : as in Ah am Jimmy , or more specific in this case it would be am Jimmy missing the ah.( the ah is mostly dropped except in the case of an answer to a question. e.g "Who is coming to the store with me?." answer " ah am" , I am
ain = own: as in this story is my ain, but i would still own my ain home.
auld = old : as in am getting auld, grey hairs are starting to show.
awa = away:tae = to fit=foot: baw= ball: as in am awa tae the fitbaw.
I`ll love you and leave you for now before i make a galoot (fool) of myself, please let me know if you would like more translations and i will publish them.....jimmy
