For my first microblogvember post, I’m going to mix it with my series of Scots posts.
Stay in Scots, sometimes spelt stey, means live (in a place), dwell, stay, stop.
“Ah stay in Glesca.” (I live in Glasgow.)

@SusanB Love this, can't wait to see more Scots. A language I know a little of but not enough (also, hi from Glasgow too!)

@SusanB I’m really enjoying your and @JezB’s Scots posts; it’s interesting to see the similarities and differences.

@gordonmclean Hi fellow Glaswegian! I'm sure you know plenty of Scots words just from speaking to folks in town. It's been fun relearning the words we were given into trouble for saying growing up—more posts soon. 😁 You should check out my hubby, JezB’s animals in Scots posts.

@smokey I’m glad you’re enjoying it 😊 Yeah, Scots and English are closely related, but then there’s all these great words that are totally foreign to English—but totally normal for me. We’ve got loads of French, Dutch, and German derived words in the mix, too.

@SusanB Now I'm wondering how to pronounce Glaswegian. I can think of several ways. Probably none of those are correct. 😎

@ddykstal I've heard a few. It's really nice and simple: Glaz-wee-juhn.
