A sub-mariner chops the tip off a strange plant which turns out to be a sensitive appendage attached to what was, up to that point, a large slumbering monster.
The Scottish Word:


Ah’ve grippit an snippit the tip aff o yin o the spirlie spruts frae the unco linear row o spruts yiv observed doon here.

It’ll be in the sample poke in a jiffie and I’ll be up tae the surface in a tick.

Mission accomplished nae problem.

Awfie reid juice skooshin oot fur a plant tho.


sprut, sproot: sprout.

I have taken hold and snipped the tip off of one of the thin spindly sprouts from the strange linear row you have observed down here.

It’ll be in the sampling bag in an instant and I will be up to the surface shortly.

Mission accomplished, just as expected.

Awfully red juice squirting out for a plant though.

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