Hi Iain,

I can appreciate the initial confusion when first seeing the dialect (as I imagine you are experiencing).

It does take a while to get used to the “new” words and phrases that older Scottish poetry contains. But – it comes………

I offer this website as a possible help in that regard:

http://www.astro.ubc.ca/people/scott/book.pdf

Douglas Scott’s massive work is an excellent reference for understanding the Borders area tongue. It also is great for anyone interested in the Hawick area and its people from long ago. I might note again that this is a very large file and does take a while to download.

Regards,

Larry
