Orcadian Dialect 

Posted by Administrator Tuesday, December 02, 2014 4:36:00 PM

We have been trying to learn more about the Orcadian Dialect as we think people should use it more. Pupil Council have made it one of their targets too. We have created an Orkney words display (P1 - 3 liked our work so much they wanted to do some too). Can you guess what the words mean? Lift the flaps (if you're in school; it's a bit tricky on the web) to find out....

We have also had Councillor Harvey Johnson helping us - he presents the Radio Orkney word game Wassigo and went through some Orkney poems with us.
