The Shetland Dialect, As I See It, or Hear It.

That's my pet project.

Check it out at Shetland Dictionary, Please help by adding words and phrases.

Feel free to e-mail me if you are unsure how to add to the dictionary.(Look for the "e-mail this user" thingy on the left of this page).

Even if you have just heard a word and don't know what it means, just let me know what it sounded like and in what context it was used, and I will try to figure it out.

Nations I Have Visited (Tongue In Cheek)!!

  • Scotland
  • England
  • Papa Stour - Possibly the most geologically interesting place in Shetland

I'm like a good wine, I don't travel well.
