Description
A canny, pocket-sized anthology of 1,000 Scottish sayings. Arranged A-Z, and with a useful glossary: revel in colourful Scottish words and phrases. Full of allusion and time-worn wisdom, this charming collection by Scottish publisher Birlinn offers many, often humorous, phrases from hundreds of years of Scottish culture. Includes: ‘a bairn maun creep afore it gangs’ (you must walk before you run); ‘a day to come seems langer than a year that’s gane’ (awaiting something feels like forever); and ‘muckle ease an’ muckle hunger' on ‘it’s a dog’s life’.
