As Scots isna tocht, fowk can mistak general-like aspecks o Scots as kinna ‘local’. Sae interestin FB post frae Níall Páraig Ó Treasaigh “When ah wis wee, ah’d add “eh no?” rather than jist “eh?” tae the end o a sentence tae mak it intae a question. Is this jist a Stirling/Faakirk thing? Dae ye yaise this yersels? If so/no, whaurabouts are ye fae?“.
Ma repine: Known as ‘question tags’. Usually operate in a similar positive/negative way to English; He’s no gaun, is he? However negative tags can have a distinct Scots form He’s on the buroo, is he no? (with rising intonation). Compare to the English-like form He’s on the buroo, i(s)n’t he? (with falling intonation).
The neutral tag Eh? which can be either positive or negative is also very common He’s on the buroo, eh? and He isna on the buroo, eh? A negative tag eh no? can also be used here.
There is an analogy with a very similar informal positive tag hè common in Flemish/Dutch.
The colloquial urban Glasgow tag int it as in It’s awfie faur int it? is thought to be a fairly recent innovation or perhaps import.
Och, an mibbies explains this an aw..
