Word of the Week: “Haim”

Haim, haim on the range!

This one is possibly more of an accent thing
than part of the local dialect,
as “haim” = “home”.

For example,
“Haim tae bed.”
(“Home to bed.”)

The same phonetic eI vowel sound in “haim”
(like the word “say”)
is found in “faither” (“father”),
a pronunciation I’ve also heard around Aberdeen.

Next Wednesday: Having a blether!
