Collated from various sources including Helen Beaton’s 1925 At the Back o’ Benachie and Professor Alexander Fenton’s academic collection of the sayings of Aberdeenshire parishes in the 1950s, Doric Sayings is a cornucopia of Doric wit an wisdom, some of it in the form of rhyme and riddle. Couthie comments about everyday life; caustic remarks about the neighbours; philosophical reflections on work or the weather. Who could fail to be re-assured to know that aathing his an eyn but a mealie pudden his twa?
