GUEST,Dave MacKenzie Origin: Donald Where's Your Trousers / ...Troosers (97* d) RE: Donald Where's Your Trousers 23 Aug 08


In English, of course one would say "Donald, where are your trousers?": However in Scots the rules of grammar different, and "Donald, whaur's yer troosers?" is correct. There's also the added problem that if you spell words phonetically in Scots, you often come out with the standard English spelling, eg night, laugh, plough.
