I ADMIT that as a stand-up I’ve done my fair share of slagging off Ulster Scots.
Like many, I questioned if it wasn’t more a dialect than language. Then this week I was forced to think again.
I’m married to a woman who kicks with the other foot, so occasionally there are some language difficulties. An example was dinner on Sunday when my wife, in conversation with her mother, used the word ‘glaikit’ to describe someone.
