Thread Name: BS: Scots Rhyming Slang???
Subject: RE: BS: Scots Rhyming Slang???
When you were cold, especially after 'swimming' in the sea on the West coast, your mammy would give you a 'chitterin' bite i.e. a sandwich. We never said 'shivering' but always 'chitterin'.
This thread is not really totally concerned with 'Scots Rhyming Slang' as there are lots of Lallans language words mentioned but still very interesting.
