GUEST,Scabby Doug Scots Glossary - comments (17) RE: Scots Glossary 21 Jul 03


Yeah, but remember akenaton, it's a "Glossary" not a Scots Grammar or Dictionary.   While it's true that "Ae thocht" means "One thought", so would "yin thocht", and "ane thocht". Personally I'd have rendered
it as "A thought", depending on the source context, but from the context, the gloss given may be appropriate.

And as for "a maiter o'" - I can see quite easily how it could translate as "as much as" OR as "pertaining to", dependent on context.

Let's not beat people up over attempts to provide a resource. It's a very good effort, even if it's not absoultely perfect.   

Cheers


Steven
