The word 'Outwith" ... How many English posters use this word?

Discussion in 'Personal' started by anon4561, May 27, 2011.

  1. Just curious....It is a Scottish word, but most definitely not recognized in Australia....Is it generally recognized in England?
  2. I can't believe you didn't say "generally recognized outwith Scotland"!

    Outwith, never use it, it looks good but I have no idea what it means or if it means anything at all.
  6. 'sbutterfly season?
  7. I say outwith!
  8. Er....that might of course be because I am Scottish
  9. It's outwith your frame of reference, then? Hey, Lurk, do you know what chuckies are? (ssh, Cosmos)
  10. Chuckies are those blokes in skirts that throw them telegraph poles about....or are they t ossers?
  11. I say "elsewise" does that count?

    I'd never heard it before I moved to Jockland, and I've never heard it since I left. Stupid term, unlike some Scottishisms which are endearing and amusing.
