If anyone listens to the Breakfast Show on talkSport radio (mw 1089) the word 'numptie' is used quite often between the presenters - one of them being ex Scotland footballer Alan Brazil. He also like sto use the word 'tube' in tha same manner too.

Amusingly enough the Scottish word for a chav is a ned. :D

Tizzy
14-12-2005, 10:03:43
And "dogging" means skipping school :D

mr.G
14-12-2005, 10:20:37

I don't use Scottish words enough (apart from "bru" :D).

My favourite is "glaikit", meaning stupid, usually used to describe someone's expression if they're looking a bit vacant.

Funko
14-12-2005, 10:47:05
I can see that will be a word I use all the time. :lol:

Tizzy
14-12-2005, 10:48:14
And "crabbit", I like that too, meaning grumpy, irritable.

You'll probably need that one too :D

Funko
14-12-2005, 10:53:36
Probably need that one shortly after overusing the first one.

Funko
14-12-2005, 10:54:03
glaikit sounds Dutch, which is suitable really.

Tizzy
14-12-2005, 11:04:31
This is quite good (http://www.scotsmagazine.com/words.asp)

MAGGOTY-HEIDIT
If someone is described as maggoty-heidit, he or she is of a whimsical nature.

= MrG?

Funko
14-12-2005, 11:09:10
It's no wonder I didn't understand half of what was going on in Scotland. :lol:

Funko
14-12-2005, 11:14:38
MAICK
Pronounced "make", this was an old halfpenny or a meagre tip. If something is not worth a maick, it is useless. "That (object) is as much use as a maick watch!"

:hmm:

Not sure I like that one.

MoSe
14-12-2005, 11:19:37
depends

I can't say how different are "make" and "mike" pronounced in Scotland

is that something like to die today??
:lol:

Funko
14-12-2005, 11:43:57
It's mainly because that's how MrG tends to spell Mike.

Nills Lagerbaak
14-12-2005, 11:50:07
Mike is a big bairn!

nonono, that would be welsh

I think I told you when I was driving to Fishguard to take the Ireland Ferry in the middle of the night, back in '86...
at a roundabout in the middle of nowhere in Wales I saw two guys so I stopped to ask for directions
they answered something incomprehensible which sounded german, so I promptly replied "Ach so, du bist Deutsch! Ich muss zu Fischguard fahren, bitte!"
