Owl asking Mole, resurfacing, how long he thinks the red nose now stuck to his face had been buried.
The Scottish Word:


“Weel Moudie auld pal, hoo long’s thon neb been yirdit then, dae ye ken?” Spiered the hoolet frae its delf in the tree.


yirdit: buried

“Well Mole, my old friend, how long has that nose been buried then, do you know?” Asked the owl from its excavated hollow in the tree.

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

Glad to report that all red noses are no longer made from plastic and are now biodegradable.
