  • The Patter

    The following thread is a public service for those who are deprived of a copy of "The Complete Patter" by Michael Munro. For the unfamiliar, Michael Munro has published three editions of a wonderful dictionary of Glasgow speech.

    However, why read a book when you can get it straight from the horse's mouth? Alright Glaswegians... any favourite phrases, words, or rhyming slang?

    "Up Suckie, doon Buckie, an alang Argyle"

    "never died a winter yet"

    For T-Bird: "See YOU Jimmy!"

        Ha ha ha, Jarmine. I know. I put that link down before I really investigated the site. Not very busy, is it?

          The site isn't very busy but the e-group used to be. I was a member of it but had to pull out cos there was just too much stuff to read! I was reading it off the page and not getting the e-mails (thank Goodnes!)

            I was on that list too jarmine. Too many notes! Do you have the URL, in case people want to check it out for themselves?

            Another of my favourite phrases:

            "He wouldny gie a blind sparra a worm."

              Hi Sonsie, one good source of Gallus Glasgae banter is the BBC Scotland comedy TV show "Chewin the fat", the most famous phrase being "Goanae no dae that!!".

                Hiya Bob,

                Shortly before you arrived on the S.com scene, there was the beginnings of a "Chewin' The Fat" topic. For your reading-and-posting pleasure:

                            I'm not familiar with Embra patter bob, maybe you could start another topic? Love to hear more.

                            Saw another phrase I'd never heard before...

                            "as steamed up as a lavvy windae".

                              Hi Sonsie, hahahahaha. I like that phrase i've been in a few lavvies with steamed up windows, and am probably responsible for some of them.
