Student being disrespectful to the calligraphy master and about to get a face full of ink.
The Scottish Word:


Diz yer stribbly hair no get in the road?

Diz it no get mankie wi the ink?

Hoo is it ye divni get onie ink oan yer fingers?

Why did ye dae that wee stribbly flick at the end o yer stroke?


stribbly: loose trailing hair, straggly.

Does your long straggly hair not get in the way?

Does it not get spoiled with the ink?

How can it be that your fingers do not get any ink on them?

Why did you do that little loose flick at the end of your stroke?

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