Elaine C Smith: "Blethering Scots"

Elaine C Smith and Denis Lawson featured recently in ‘Blethering Scots’ a BBC2 series in which Scottish personalities share their favourite Scots words.

Elaine C Smith talks here about the different dialects and words she encountered during her Glaswegian upbringing, her teaching career in Edinburgh and her panto performances in Aberdeen. She comments on the regional variations from the Borders to the North East. Elaine's favourite word is 'dreich ' but she enjoys the liveliness of Scots language in everyday speech.
