Is that you got a new position on here as chief translator Jammy!! How do you explain to somebody that the word "who" is "fa" in Fraserburgh,"whae" in my Dunbar dialect,and "wha" in Ayrshire lingo ??...mission impossible  :tickedoff:....All credit to Armada mind you,at least he had the courage to ask !!

Some learn by reading,some ask questions,others observe...but there's always one who has to pee on an electric fence for himself.

You've just confused things even more Steve...that poor man Armada will be away to lie down in a darkened room by now if he's been following this  :tickedoff:

Coming from Spain he will be well used to differing dialects within a Country - plenty to pick from there  :tickedoff:

Hi Ronnie

One of life's little mysteries - why should humans not speak in one language, for one thing it would make things a lot easier  :tickedoff:

nae chance ronnie as you pointed out what one person speaks is different form another not wanting to start any arguments like
just trying to work our scot/spain relations you no not wanting to be threatened with "the rope in the propellor" scene :tickedoff: :tickedoff: ;) :tickedoff:

This is Rodi...a Euro-Newbie on this site. Regards.
Thats a good list/dictionary. Quite a few of the words translate directly into Dutch..some into Norwegian.
Maybe Doric is a language of "sea people" and not actual countries or lands?
I would much like to know old old Doric words for sea fishes and gear..and not ones used now which are "English". There would be a lot clues in that info.
