Trying to solve a mystery here.  My great aunt aged 86 uses 
a word in Broad Scots??? for not feeling well,  "Stooning" or 
stouning.  Does anyone know how to use it in a sentence in 
the proper context???  
Thanks, 
Barbara Henderson Weiner

Hi. I need help. I am making a research about modal verbs in 
Scots. and have a question about double modal costructions -
 like "I might can do it". Are they often used? What 
combinations of verbs exactly and how are questions and 
negatives formed in such sentences?

(1993), 99-138.

Scots dialects show unusual pronunciation variants in the
case of vowels followed by -r  in the same syllable, e.g.
the "airt" above, but it is difficult to locate information
about such words on your pages that cover the various Scots
dialects. May I suggest that, if possible, you do some
research and then add a special sub-section (in connection
with the section on vowels) to provide some examples of such
words? 

I thenk ye kindly...
