A wus thinkin' aboot it fir a wee bit 'n a decided tae celebrate the Burn's Night by pennin' a wee ditty fir ma blog in ma mangled versin o Scots.

Noo, whin a wis wee we wurnae encouraged tae speak in Scots cis it wis generally believed thit it wis basic'ly slang... Yi aey put oan yer posh voice whin talkin tae yir Granny 'n yir teacher. But y'd get a doin' fir speakin aw posh in that tae yir pals.

Um fae North Kelviside (a bit o Maryhull in Glasgow whur people kid oan thir posher thin they ur) A would'nae really toak like this normally, a wid feel like a daftie.

Bit it's Burn's 'n maybe we should aw tak a wee bit moar pride in whur we come fae.

Hope yous aw huv yersels a pure dead brilliant Burn's night, enjoy yir haggis, neeps n'tatties.

Fair fa’ aw yous sonsie faces 'n Lang may yer lums reek.

P.S Gonnae no point oot aw ma mistakes, a know am a pure tumshie.

  2. Thank you for every little taste of Scotland :o) I spent two weeks in Edinburgh studying English at Napier and living with a host family and had the most amazing time, accent and all (when the grandparents came to visit to sniff out the visitor, Ivonne, my host mum, had to translate *L*).

    1. Scotland really is a beautiful country, you would be welcome back anytime ;o)

      Most of us know how to tone the language down for the visitors, but I do have a neighbour who I even struggle to understand.
