Hi!

Does anyone know a site with a good Nac Mac Feegle dictionary?

All the best,

I don't know about a website, but there's the 'A FEEGLE GLOSSARY ADJUSTED FOR THOSE OF A DELICATE DISPOSITION (A Work In Progress By Miss Perspicacia Tick)' in some of the Tiffany books.

The Feegles in Carpe Jugulum seem to speak a different dialect to the ones in the Tiffany books. If you look at annotations for Carpe Jugulum on LSpace, you'll see quite a lot there as well.

Hope that helps. :wink:

Actually, joking aside, I find I understand what the Feegles are saying better if I read out loud.

I spent some time in Glasgow a few years ago and sometimes it was impossible to understand what people were saying. :shock:

Not a Weegie (Glaswegian) but Scottish and willing to provide a translations service as required.

Problem with interpreting the Feegles is their 'scottish' tongue has been written by someone who doesn't actually speak it... Not that I'm defaming The Creator in anyway you understand.

Are you also a midget beer-swilling maniac?

The qualifications are very strict. :wink:

Don't forget Verra, Verra Strong. Drinkin', Fightin' and Stealin'. They have been known to carry a coo (cow) or a ship (sheep) backwards very, very fast... often backwards and to the bewilderment of the animal.

They are known to cry "Oh Waily, Waily" when confronted with problems, such as "The Crossin' 'o' the Arms" "The Tappin' 'o' the Toes" and the dreaded "Pursin' 'o' the Lips" by Jeannie when they have come home late.

They were also thrown out of the underworld for being too rowdy.

I enjoy reading about Rob Anybody reading "Where's my Cow?" in front of his Kelda Jeannie and his new children watching in awe.

My Brother-in-law to be plays the Bagpipes, I can understand the feeling Tiffany must get when the Mousepipes are played.
Aha! So, Bob's yer uncle... very clever.

Tina that is quite factual in Scotland in the older times,"The Crossin' 'o' the Arms" "The Tappin' 'o' the Toes" and the dreaded "Pursin' 'o' the Lips" by Jeannie when they have come home late. Oh! and the silent glare. :lol:
