Good to see that Scots is getting recognition as a language, 
not just as english with a few local dialect words.

As a child, and indded now, I have many happy memories of 
Dundee and its people.  On the upper deck , at the front, of 
your wonderfuul   trams runung at speed down from Lochee 
to Reform St, passing the old Howff Burial Ground (now 
desecrated as a car park!!).

I would like some help with some Dundee Words.

1) My old Mac - a100% Dondonian used the word SLOP(my 
spelling may be wrong) for a Policeman.  Can anyone 
confirm this, or advise?

2) A BUSTER. My mother remembers that great Dundee 
delicacy a BUSTER. Isd it still alive and well. Origin of the 
word and its history.Any help again welcome.

I have recently bought , here in Edinburgh, a beautifully 
published book "Dundee Women's Trail".  (Dundee knowns 

Can anyone suggest books, pamphlets etc on the Local 
Dundee Dialect?

I am a Glasgow man; born and bred.

Hi. These words mentioned are pure black country english, 
and have no traceable link to the scots leid. I have a person 
from Birmingham City here whom states that "Bullry / Buller" 
is indeed a word used by the middle english folks that 
means "The Bullring" - a shopping area in Birmingham.
However, I cannot see what this has to do with this site, as it 
is for them as speaks the scots leid, not a platform for other 
lingus. Sorry, but I feel that you are mistaken in coming to 
this site.
Incidently, many english and scots words are similar, eg: 
glacket / Glaikit, Gi'en / Ge'ein / gid / gid, as most scots here 
would be of the "weegie" ie: norwegian descent - as are most 
english folk. Though i do ken the german / jermon link 
mentioned somewhere, as many original scottish designated 
people are of german origins, likes the Jutes of England. Up 
here it is irish/pictish/german/trojan links.
Hope this helps..............see ya,....Shona Martin
