    Comments please:  A suggestion has been made in the Guestbook, that it might be better to re-name this section: "Scots words commonly used in Edinburgh".
    If you have any views on this topic,
    please email me.  Thank you.

  • Replies
    Thank you to all who sent replies to me.  In fact almost every reply that I received was different, so I've decided to 'include notes below the heading, saying that many of the words are Scots words, also used elsewhere.
