Scotsman on a glass bridge shouting at speeding couple in pedal boat below.
The Scottish Word:


Hoi! It’s no ma faut folk are biggin canal bridges oot o glaiss.

Ahn wha decided you shuid be the arbiter of what a quine sees or disni see onywye?

Are you the boss o her?

Noo she’ll nivir ken if what a true Scotsman wears unner his kilt is aught she wanted to hae seen or no?


faut: fault, blame.

I say! It is not my fault if people are building canal bridges out of glass.

And who decided that you should be the arbiter of what a woman sees or doesn’t see anyway?

Are you her owner?

Now she’ll never know if what a true Scotsman wears under his kilt is something she wanted to have seen or not.

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