We should have a similar thread for Ulster Scots - infinitely more entertaining.

Can't find a satisfactory Ulster Scots word for gay.

"Big Jessie" has been suggested but I don't really buy that one.

"A wee bit shy of hiself" is the best I've found :lol:


Jaysus Merv don't encourage him, he'll set one up for respect of languages and culture forbye.
Support the team and coaching staff. Forget the rest,BUT NEVER MOVE ON.

Was good in years past out and about the pubs and discos south of the border if a few girls started talking between themselves about you, that really stopped them as they then thought you had understood all they had said

"Gay" in Ulster Scots is "gay", but spoken in a Ballymena accent.

But, for the avoidance of any doubt, it is spelt TACSAI. It all just goes to show that there are a good few easy words to learn folks.

Does the Irish 'Banana' not just mean a female Anna?
