A fish on land leaning against a tree slowly explaining to the wading heron why this should be so - and the unseen water monster swims up behind - underwater.
The Scottish Word:


Yer wunnerin why aw us fish roond here are aw on the land noo?

An there’s nane o us in the watter?

Weel – I’ll tell ye for why…


nane, naen, neen, neun: none

You are are wondering why all of the fish around here are on the land now?

And that there are none of us in the water?

Well – I’ll tell you the reason why…

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