550 Scots Phrases #GiesAScotsPhraseDay

This collection of Scots phrase was the second in a planned series of online publications aimed at helping adult learners speak and write Scots.

I gathered the phrases around 2014 from a variety of sources.

An update with ‘new’ Scots phrases from the internet was long overdue, but this edition was inspired by ‘Gies A Scots Phrase Day’ (June 2021) #GiesAScotsPhraseDay.
