About this title:

Synopsis: The Scots were too tough for the Roman Britons: far from imposing the Latin language on them, shaken Roman colonists built a wall to keep them out of England. But over centuries and with considerable reluctance, the Scottish people adopted the mixture of Norman French, leftover Latin, and German spoken by their neighbors to the south. Characteristically stubborn, however, the Scots mingled a lot of their own Celtic vocabulary with English and ended up speaking in a tongue that neatly defeated all outsiders' efforts to understand what they were saying.

With a word on one side of each card--where necessary, spelled phonetically as well as formally--and a definition and usage example on the other side, this deck of 48 cards goes some small way toward decoding the incomprehensible language of Scotland. Take it along on your next visit to Caledonia and you'll be able to ask a howtowdie where the cludgie is without being thought a haiverer. Size: 3 1/4 x 4 inches.
