I took notes while I was there.. I can curse people out and leave them saying, ‘huh?’

I have a scot on my Facebook. And his favourite word (I'm actually unsure if he can say anything else. Because it's literally almost the only word he utters. So much so he's kids shares photos of the word on his page)

The words starts with C and ends with unt.

Interestingly Truls' word in question has, in Scotland a versatility I have not encountered elsewhere.

It is often used as a kind of punctuation particularly in the West and South west. It can appear in a single sentence as many as six or seven times!

It is definitely used as an insult.
It is also used as a compliment ie .. " See him over there, he's a good c**t" - this is a real endorsement.
It is used as an adjective with the addition of 'y' or 'ing' tagged on at the end ie " I can't change the c**ting flat tyre!"

Rarely if ever, is it used in the s e x u a l sense and almost never, in my experience, associated with females. It is always directed towards men.

Yup, we are very strange but as a nation have elevated 'cussing' to such a level it's into space :shock:

In norwegian the corresponding word can be used the same way. But also for the anatomical part.
Also used as a general expletive. Kinda like Fu*k.

Finally got some paint on the minis with 2 units of Horse complete! 1st up is Hugh Magill as a personality leading his own Squadron, then we have Rawdon's 3rd Squadron waiting in reserve with pistols drawn. Next up will be Rawdon leading his 1st and 2nd squadrons on the charge!

Referring back to the cussing, it works much the same here, to the east of London. Or is that just me with my foreign ancestry ?
Lovely looking figures BTW.
