Speak o' the north-east

£70.00

Product description

Cover in good condition, binding tight. Pages are clean.

The uniquely picturesque language of the North-East of Scotland is becoming less widely known and less commonly spoken.

This collection of words, phrases and sayings arranged in the contexts and circumstances in which they were used in ordinary, everyday conversation is intended to provide a record of the dialect while it is still possible to do so from the recollections of those for whom this was and is the native tongue and normal mode of speech.

An entertaining read both to those who are familiar with the dialect and those new to it.
