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???

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?

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

I thenk ye kindly...
