Dialects change all the time, and although Buckie is considered to be a relic area (that means the language changes more slowly than other dialects… but don’t be personally offended by this…J), it too changes.

You can often tell if something is old or new by doing ‘the granny test’, try this out in one of the quizzes below – Ye Cannae Tell Yer Grannie! Then have a go at our other quizzes to find out whether you’re an Accent Accelerator or a Dialect Defender!
