Mibbes we've had this buik flaggit up afore, bit a've been haein a swatch at it an it's nae baud. It's guy intrestin tae hae the grammar o Lallans, giein that it's deefrent frae Mercian, explainit an the points that aiblins a hadnae pickit up on pointit oot.

It was rare guid tae see graith lik:

this
that
an

thon

pointit oot. We ne'er mind the fact that there's muckle ithir things in Lallans that jist arenae in Mercian, grammatically ye ken.

It's nae dout worth pittin yer e'e on it.... efter ye hae a guid laugh at the boay ettlin tae punt it on fir a thoosan pun!

A see. Weel a've been readin mair o it ower the last day or twa, an a've seen muckle graith that's wirth the tellin. A've got giy in tae the thocht that Lallans taks efter Heilans wi its yaise o:

this: seo
that: sin
thon: siud

the third wan o thaem isny yaised in Mercian.....

jist lik the yaise in Lallans whaur we speik it:

the day: an-diugh
the nicht: a(n)-nochd
the morra: a(m)-maireach

an on an on lik sae. That's hoo we see whaur the disteinction cam frae, the Heilans, nae dout...

It's been an education fur shair....

Although a'm are a wee dod concernit wi the spellin system o Lallans. There's this wiy that it's gittin yaised an a'm as guilty o it as ilkithir, o spellin it phoneticly, insteid o yaisin the auld wiy that it was scrievit afore Hume an ilka bodie stertit ettlin tae eradicate 'Scotticisms' frae their speik. F*ckin disgraceful turn-seimmits!


:lol:
