Hippopotomus and chef at tea on a floating table on the plains of Africa.
The Scottish Word:


Noo… we tak turns tae hud the floating table doon. When mistress Hippo taks a bite o cake we hud it doon an when we tak a bite o cake she huds it doon.

She huds it doon annaw when we tak a sip o tea.

Nae problem eh!


tak, tack, tuk: take

Now… we take turns to hold the floating table down. When mistress Hippo takes a bite of cake we hold it down and when we take a bite of cake she holds it down.

She holds it down as well when we take a sip of tea.

No problem at all.

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