Okay, okay, I've added some more (somewhat-inexact) synonyms for "crabbit" and "dreich". There were already lots of synonyms for "firth" ("inlet", "river mouth", "fjord", etc.). "Croft" and "crofter" are both common words, though perhaps not if you live in the city. "Corbie" is expected to be difficult, though it does appear in a traditional folk song, and can be deduced by anyone who recognizes the Latin root.

The Scottish language is sadly deteriorating in modern times. I saw a study in which researchers dialed random phone numbers in Scotland and asked the person who answered "D'ye ken Scots?" Only about one third answered "aye". (The rest either answered "no" or, worse, "yes".)

I tried dither/ing because I think of it as a verb & adjective rather than a noun. Ah well.

"Lies" should be accepted fro "havers". And "Bonnie" & "Braw" can be used interchangeably for "pretty".

I love listening to Swedish dramas (Wallander) because Swedish has words that are the same or similar. Especially braw. Which always makes me happy for some reason.
