Even though most people in Scotland speak English, they have their own “Scottish words” that are special to the country and are used commonly. Here, I will list the new Scottish words I learn throughout my time at the University of St. Andrews!
Haggis: ground up sheep giblets with spices, stuffed in a sheep’s stomach and boiled
Bangers and Mash: sausage and potatoes
Neeps and Tatties: turnips and potatoes
Toastie: toasted sandwich
Blood Pudding: sausage made of onions, pork fat, pork blood, and oatmeal
Scotch Egg: hard-boiled egg wrapped in sausage
Tattie Scone: potato pancake
Crisps: potato chips
Zed: the letter z
Alright?: how are you?
