Doric Variations

Posted by berkeleyscot on February 25, 2008

It wis affy interesting tae hear Robbie Shepherd read oot a wee bittie o my story, ‘Scottish Hospitality.’

Bit fit he read oot wis different Doric tae mine. I noticed richt awa that he said I wis “hyne oot in California.”

In my ain Doric, I’d say, “hing awa in California.”

Robbie was born in Dunecht, Aberdeenshire. His Doris is cwintry and mine is fisher. Bit there’s a kin o variations o the Doric, depenin on far ye come fae, or furry boots as fowk in Aiberdeen wid say.

I’ll be kyavin awa at this affy interestin subject.
