  • Scottish version of a "Cute hoor" and "Jack the Lad"

    What is the Scottish version of a "Cute hoor", and a "Jack The Lad"?

    The former, I will not degrate the Scots language to comment upon.

    The latter: 'first meinister'

      Is Cute hoor considered derogatory?

      What is Scottish slang for "clever or smart fellow"?

        I have long wondered if there is any real difference between a garden hoe and a street hoe.

        You can lead a horticulture, but you can't make her think.

          Hoor is the Scottish pronunciation of whore so to call a woman a cute hoor would be a grevious insult,although hoor has somehow found it's way into everyday Scottish speech to mean "a lot of".

            As a Scotswoman, I would be extremely insulted to be so-called.

              I'm sorry-the term I meant was "boyo".
              What's the Scottish version of a "boyo"?

                Hello. I apologize for posting the term "cute hoor".

                Boyo is Irish slang for "clever fellow".

                  Since when has 'boyo' meant 'clever fellow' in Irish?

                  Our version of 'clever fellow' is 'smairtairse'.
