I feel like I’ve been a bad blogger recently.
Life gets distracting doesn’t it?!
I’m still here though! Hello!
The week before last,
I went to stay with a friend
for a wedding in Yorkshire.
this is the use of the word “stay”
that I am most familiar with.
In other words,
to “remain in a temporary sense”,
such as a holiday or overnight stop.
Since moving to Scotland,
I have noticed that “stay”
is often used in place of the word “live”.
“where do you stay?”
(“where do you live?”)
I was asked this question a lot
in the first few weeks of moving to Aberdeen.
When reversing the question,
I received responses such as
“I stay in Danestone/Garthdee/etc.”
(“I live in Danestone/Garthdee/etc.”)
I find these little differences really interesting!
Can you tell?!
Next Wednesday: Wheesht!
