Book of Scots terms

13th November 2007

Artist Scott Simpson has illustrated a series of Scots words by assigning a character to each one. These include 'ned', 'clype', 'crabbit' and many other well known words. Wrongly reported by the Daily Record as "classic slang terms", these words drawn from the Scots language will be immediately recognisable as part and parcel of daily speech. This publication - entitled 'Baminals: All Creatures Big and Boggin' - is available from Black & White Publishing is available now price 9.99.
