Best Scottish/Aberdonian Word?


Recommended Posts

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)
