The Scottish Word:

Flodge

“An after ye’ve fauched, delled an scartled it to a fine tilth be sure to flodge it o’er afore ye lay the turf.”

Translated:

flodge: walk clumsily.

“And after you have broken up the land, dug it over and raked it to a fine tilth be sure to shuffle like a duck over the soil to flatten it before you lay the turf.”
