We are in the NE of Scotland and have more or less a complete langage called Doric.
There are many books etc on the subject, and the area is fairly proud of it. If two strong Doric speakers are talking, the words used, the accent, and the speed of talking, means that an outsider will not understand.

Having said that, after reading this it seems that other areas have just as many "words", and by the sound of it I would struggle in some other areas of the country.

Anyway, "I've been oot an mated an bedded the beese in the big coort, caaed a load O sila ooer till the aul steadin wis the cowpy bogie, seen there is a heefer nae grate so gid her a jab, an noo its fly time so am in for tay an a butterie"

Plenty on here will know what that lot means. :D :D :D
