Golfer getting advice from his caddy chipping off of the hand of a spotty faced giant who is also holding the 8th green.
The Scottish Word:


Noo this is a bairnie shot an it’s a chip ontae the green no a drive.

And Mak sure ye dinni hit the big yin in the ee, nor tak a divot oot o his luif or he’ll likely turn it intae a nieve and that’s a sticky end tae ye. I’ll loup backwarts intae the watter, I’ve done it afore.

Nae pressure then, awa ye go.


Bairnie: Child like, little child, small baby.

Now this is a shot a small child could make and it is a chip onto the green not a drive.

And make sure you do not hit the big man in the eye, nor should you take a divot out of his palm or he will likely turn it into a fist and that’s a sticky end to you. I’ll leap backwards into the water, I’ve done it before.

No pressure then, away you go.

The Scottish Word: bairnie with its definition and its meaning illustrated and captioned with the word used in context in the Scots language and in English.
