In Scots, to have a blether is to gossip or engage in a long-winded or idle conversation.
But when applied to a person, blether is also a term for a gossip, a chatterbox, or someone who talks a lot of nonsense.
A bletherer can also be someone who is prone to boasting and exaggeration.
With roots as far back as the 15th century, blether has featured regularly in Scottish literature and today is widely in everyday use.
