a guid fun wey tae lairn oor language
Oor Wullie is helping children learn Scots through an online initiative developed by the National Library of Scotland.
The Oor Wullie's guide tae Scots language website aims to introduce six to 11-year-olds to the richness of the Scots tongue.
Other features include a glossary of words such as "fantoosh", "bampot" and "muckle" as well as poems and songs and an audio map which allows children to submit a recording of their own use of Scots to help build up a picture of dialects across Scotland (Who will be the first from Muirkirk to submit a recording?)
In the Glossary are some wirds tae help ye get stertit lairnin Scots. Ye can hear whit the wird soons like first in Scots an than in English. Ye can read whit the wird means an how it can be yaised in a sentence anaw.
