If I hear the word ' like ' repeated so many times in a conversation again,I will scream! It is just lazy grammar.

I completely agree with you on this one, twin par. Like is nowhere near as authentic as the Fifer`s favourite... ken?

Like at the end of every sentence is up there with "man" and the kirckaldy favourite "Lawd"

`Like` seems to be universal. Another favourite is `kinna` (`kind of`) which is usually totally unnecessary but is often used by people you would think would know better.

Weegies adding “So I did” “so she did” “so he did” to the end of a sentence when they are telling you about something they did is another one.

“My wife went to the bingo last night, so she did” arrrrggghhh :-)

There used to be a fairly senior manager at my work who used "kinna" all the time, as a filler word when he was thinking what to say. He was actually a very intelligent guy, but when he would be making some excellent points, it would become lost with the amount of times he could say kinna in a sentence. Fortunately, someone must have mentioned it to him as when I encountered him recently he had cut it out and it made him sound far more professional and articulate

As in "I'm off to the shop furty get milk"

And most famous (at our work)....

I pulled out furty tak ower him

`DefinAtely` - seems to be identified with Charlie Nicholas but it`s more pervasive than that.

An English guy I used to work with initially would be waiting to hear the rest of the sentence when someone would say but at the end of the sentence. It took him some time to get this tick in the west coast vocabulary. Quite funny but.

Football managers using “wur” instead of “our” is right up there.

Any weegie phrases. For whatever reason, some weegies think everyone in Scotland should sound like them and whoever doesn't is either posh or a Teuchter.

The proper weegie accent has to be the most unattractive accent in the country (Dundonian is up there too).

Was in the car with my lad the other day and Yogi Hughes was on the radio being interviewed. He was talking about a dive someone had taken ." The last time I seen a dive that good, the boy had speedos on". Normally I'm not that keen on Yogi as I'm no great fan of his accent.Anyway it set my lad (who is quite a serious soul) off in fits. My peeve word is likesay an Edinburgh one.
