Medieval equivalent of borrowing a cup of sugar - but the monks flee from the viking with the empty bowl.
The Scottish Word:


“Ah wonder if that counts as forloppin especially when we were jist efter a bowl o drinkin sowans for the ship’s cat.”


forloppin: runaway, renegade (of priests, friars or monks).

“I wonder if that counts as abandoning one’s friary especially when we were just after a bowl of the milky liquid from the soaking of oak husks for the ship’s cat.”

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