Word of the Week: “fa”

Drum roll please for my shortest
Wednesday Word of the Week yet…
Not doe, not ray, not me,
but “fa”!

Remember “fit” (“what”)?
Well, fit is fa’s big brother.
Another interrogative pronoun
from the Doric dialect,
this time we have, “who”.

I’m borrowing my example from a granny
I heard at the supermarket.

“Tell granny, fa’s that?”
(“Tell granny who that is.”)

She was talking to her grandbaby
(I presume)
perched in the fold down, trolley seat.

The baby didn’t respond,
so I’m afraid we’ll never know…

Next Wednesday: Haimward bound?
