We scanned a "dictionary of the Scottish language" from 1899 that is hilariously and rudely incomplete, like, "bumplefeist seems to be a word for someone who is out of humour, but it might be 'wimplefeist'? definitely not 'gumplefeast' though, that's something different"

@johnrandom @casey although the one we scanned does have many entertaining handwritten annotations, there's another edition of it online already. It's multivolume but you can search "etymological dictionary of Scottish language" to find the others! archive.org/details/etymologic

@Pixley @johnrandom many thanks, dear! this promises to be a trove of fun

A small, private instance where a few cryptids may roam and play. Seek, but fear. The whole thing was birthed in a Denny's in 2016.
