I live in North Queensland Australia and heard about this site 
from a friend in Tasmania.  Being from a Scot it was 
like a home coming - thank you for a wonderful site.

I'd like to draw the author's attention to the fact that the 
schema on page 4 of “Wir Ain Leid” haes a wee error. The 
subtitle Anglo-Saxon branches into two: North and South, 
where South leads to Scots and North leads to Modern 
English. Shoud North and South no be inverted?

Ay! Whoops! Thanks!

On the '80s TV series 'The Mither Tongue', the phrase was 
being dicussed in Dundee for 'speaking in a posh accent'. It 
sounds like 'gaen eppin' - is that how I should spell it ?
Many thanks,

The wird ye're efter is 'knappin' whiles 'gnappin'.
