Things in Scots #6: Months

Welcome to day six of Things in Scots!—a fun collaboration with my husband, Jez (Mind an gie Jez’s post a keek.)

In keeping with yesterday’s days of the week, here are the months in Scots.

Junaur (also Janwar, Janavier, Janiveer, Jenewarie)

Fabruar(y) (also Februerij, Fabruarie, Februarye, Feberwerrie)

Mairch (also Merch)


Mey (also Mei)

Juin (also June, Jene, Jeene)

Julie (also Jullee, Joolee, Joolie)

Agust (also August, Awgust, Awgowst)

September (Pre-1700s: Septembre, Semptember, Semptembir)

October (Pre-1700s: Octobre, Octobere, Octobris)

Nowembir (November and Pre-1700s: Novembre)

Dissymbre (December and Pre-1700s: Decembir, desember, descemar)

Months of the year in Scots

Side note: Nowembir and Dissyember are apparantly no longer in use and belong to the pre-1700s. November and December are the names given to those months in the Dictionar o the Scots Leid. But, as a Scots speaker, who grew up in the 80s and uses Nowembir and Dissymbre, I decided to put them on the list.

If you want to ken the Scots for anything, just ask in the comments section.

Thenks fur stoapin by, and hae a wunnerfu day.
