Best Scottish/Aberdonian Word?

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to think of an decent list of proper Local or Scottish words, my favourites thus far are.

Chunty - A toilet

Tranny - An old fashioned radio

Cloot - Washing cloth

There's got to be better ones out there....

Some I like are..

mealy jerker...mealy pudding.

brander....those little drains in the gutters.

mochy...not exactly sure, but a mochy day isnae fine.

Those old Aberdeen standbys "tot" and "fud" are classics. :rockon:

Pish has always been a favourite as in "dinnae talk pish" or "that's just pish" - it just sounds sooo dismissive when said in a Scottish accent - something about those long sybllant s's. Radge was up there too but I see someone beat me to it.

Hmm, what else...

mawkit or clarty = dirty

boak (as in, "he gies me the boak) = to make one feel ill

shite = shit

chahoorsir (literally, you whore sir) = expression of disbelief or surprise (see also chahooryacuntye) common in Fife.

Gadge = a fellow (also gadgie)

scunnered, the boak, "im for the off", nae buther at a.

and my fav is reducing "excuse me, what are you doing? could you please hurry up? oh fuck it, im leaving" to three words.....by simply saying......."deein? 'mon! am'awa!!"

'Houghmagandy' is a cracking Northern Scots/Aberdonian word. It basically means shagging or 'fornication' from what I can gather.

First came across the word in the book 'Lost Aberdeen' which I can heartily recommend.
