Eejit – a Scottish words notebook
If you are not from Scotland you should be aware that Scotland has three languages, English, Scots and Scottish Gaelic along with a diverse range of different regional dialects.
English is spoken by the overwhelming percentage of the population but most people, if not actually speaking Scots, will use Scots words in their everyday conversation and eejit is one such word.
An eejit is someone who is a bit of an idiot, simpleton, one not possessed of all their mental faculties. You might say to someone, “Yer aff yer heid, ya eejit.” It came to prominence in the mid 19th century and was a regional pronunciation of idiot; the current spelling dates from the 1950s.
However you use it, it is always said in a good humoured way and without malice.
Do you know an eejit?
This notebook is the ideal birthday or anniversary gift as well as an inexpensive, fun, Christmas stocking filler for someone you think is an eejit, be they a family member or work colleague.
