    Glaswegian and Scottish Words and Phrases

    Discussion in 'Word Mechanics' started by Conall, Jun 23, 2008.

    Hello Stuart,

    you might find it easier searching for 'scottish slang' or 'scots slang' rather than just words. I found this site almost straight away. I think this is the sort of thing you're after.

    http://www.firstfoot.com/php/glossary/phpglossar_0.8/index.php

    or even the wiki page on scots words

    http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Transwiki:List_of_Scottish_slang_words

    Even the Scottish Government got in on the act too, though even I'm not sure it makes sense... and I'm a scotsman too! lol

    http://www.scottish.parliament.uk/vli/language/scots/index.htm

    Hope these help in your search.

    To add to what Conall said above, I think you should note down beside some words that they aren't only used in Scotland.
