For my first microblogvember post, I’m going to mix it with my series of Scots posts.
Stay in Scots, sometimes spelt stey, means live (in a place), dwell, stay, stop.
“Ah stay in Glesca.” (I live in Glasgow.)

  2. smokey: @SusanB I’m really enjoying your and @JezB’s Scots posts; it’s interesting to see the similarities and differences. via micro.blog

  3. SusanB: @gordonmclean Hi fellow Glaswegian! I’m sure you know plenty of Scots words just from speaking to folks in town.
    It’s been fun relearning the words we were given into trouble for saying growing up—more posts soon. 😁
    You should check out my hubby, JezB’s animals in Scots posts. via micro.blog

  4. SusanB: @smokey I’m glad you’re enjoying it 😊 Yeah, Scots and English are closely related, but then there’s all these great words that are totally foreign to English—but totally normal for me. We’ve got loads of French, Dutch, and German derived words in the mix, too. via micro.blog

  5. ddykstal: @SusanB Now I’m wondering how to pronounce Glaswegian. I can think of several ways. Probably none of those are correct. 😎 via micro.blog

  6. SusanB: @ddykstal I’ve heard a few. It’s really nice and simple: Glaz-wee-juhn. via micro.blog
