The Scottish Word:


“Oh walie walie walie a jist meant tae cut aff yir tail, sairie moose. ”


waly, walie: an exclamation of dismay, distress.

“Oh how awfully awfully distressing! I just meant to cut off your tail, sorry mouse.”

[walie spelled out in the phonetic alphabet.]
The Scottish Word: walie with its definition and its meaning illustrated and captioned with the word used in context in the Scots language and in English.
