A few days ago I used the word dreich in a blog. Not a word your average anglophone, born south of Gretna will know. If you were wondering what this word means – then here it is.
Scots has some fabulous words. If onomatopoeia is a word that sounds like what it is, then we’ve got words that are emotionally onomatopoeiac.
Dreich is how it feels, glaiket is how they look, a burach is just what it is and mingin has you holding your breath!
