My Aussie friends abbreviate words a lot by adding "y" or "ie", sometimes making the "abbreviation" longer than the original word, but I didn't realize that Scots were prone to the same tendency. My education has been furthered.

tatty is the singular, tatties is the plural.

there's some really obscure local dialects in different parts of Scotland, although "tatties" is used all over the country.

Our national dish is haggis, neeps and tatties (neeps are turnips)

showing your age there Tim, the glasgow shipyards have gone the way of the dodo. Still quite a touchy subject among the older generation.

A lot of the regional phrases in my own area (North East UK) come from the Norse invaders - words like Baern (Pronounced: Bear-n; Meaning child) and Marra (meaning friend). Try impressing your friends by saying:

"Wos gannin oot wiv wor lass an our marra's - her mam's lookin after the baerns"
Translated: "my wife and I are going out with some firends. My wife's mother is looking after the children."

:lol:

I often find it amazing at how different english is throughout the world - even travelling just a few mile north and we can struggle to understand each other.

We went up to Edinburgh for a friends birthday last year - this guy started "talking" to me about the local beer while I was waiting at the bar. I still have no idea what he said to me. It sounded like that blue guy from the cantina bar in Star Wars.

Back on topic - what about Groundnut oil?

Perhaps that's because Australians are descendants of the Scots? I think I heard that somewhere.

Yes. Scottish criminals who were sent to Australia when it was a penal colony.
