Chancer – 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 chancer is one such word.
Chancer can be used to describe someone who is a scheming opportunist, i.e. a person who exploits any opportunity to further their own ends, sometimes by taking risks.
It was used recently in Parliament in this context, “Many of those people are genuine asylum seekers, others are chancers who masquerade as genuine asylum seekers.”
However you use it, it is nearly always said in a good humoured way and without malice.
This notebook is the ideal birthday or anniversary gift as well as an inexpensive, fun, Christmas stocking filler for someone you think is a chancer, be they a family member or work colleague.
