Diving around the coast of Scotland is delightful and full of surprises such as big Conger eels popping out of crevices - providing trawlers haven't got there first.
The Scottish Word:


“Gies a gowp o grub ah’m stervin.”


gaup, gawp, gowp: large mouthful, to swallow big.

“Have you a decent mouthful of food for me, I’m starving.”

[gowp spelled out in the phonetic alphabet.]
The Scottish Word: gowp with its definition and its meaning illustrated and captioned with the word used in context in the Scots language and in English.
