The all European sweir erse championships as an agitated crowd of 8 cheer two enthusiasts tugging away while keeping their respective backsides on the ground.
The Scottish Word:


“C’mon Erchie yir only one pou frae the sweir-erse’ campioun o Europe!”


sweir-erse: reluctant backside – a game where two players sit on the ground gripping a stick between them and to win have to raise the other’s bottom clearly up off the ground.

“Come on Archibald you are only one pull from the reluctant-backside’ champion of Europe!”

[sweir erse spelled out in the phonetic alphabet.]

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