Scots word of the week

The Tab brings you the A-Z of Scots words. D’ye spaek Scots?


Since we study here in bonnie Scotland, The Tab has decided to give you the low down each week on our favourite ‘Scots’ words.

Bahookie

Meaning: a person’s buttocks, one’s backside.

So next time someone’s shoving in front of you in the WhyNot queue or your flatmate takes your seat on the sofa, just give them a good old, “Hey, shift yer bahookie!”

Clearly doesn't want to get off of her bahookie.
