Airt: Enjoying this

I'm in Fort Wayne, Indiana, in the United States. It's 
fascinating to read (slowly) through these messages to get a 
feel for the traditional language of my (very) distant cousins. 
I'm struck by the parallels between how the Scots of today 
and how folks in my grandparents' generation (born circa 
1885) spoke. Please pardon my all-English/Sassenach 
writing. Thanks.

Airt: meaning of a word heard

Hi. having moved from the black country to dwell in scotland 
(old pictland area) i happened to hear a word called "banly" 
spoken often in a cafe.
Being familiar with black country dialogue i asked this word's 
meaning, and was given as "suburb/s" or an area of an estate.
This is the same meaning as in the BC, and i am happy to 
see our languages are of a common thread.
Ta,....tolly

I have recently discovered Old Blind Dogs by way of 
Pandora 
Radio on the Internet. I really enjoy their music and 
stories but 
I can't understand a lot of the words, though I love 
the sounds 
of the language. 

So I headed out see what I could find to help figure 
out the 
words. Then I can pretend to sing along. I found 
the words to 
the songs but again a lot of words I don't know. 
More 
searching lead me here. What a wonderful site! I 
would love to 
learn more of the language but other than talking to 
myself I 
know no one who speaks Scottish so it would be 
very hard for 
me to retain the structure and such.
