    Paleerie

    When someone was behaving excitedly or emotionally etc, my mum would say that they were having a "paleerie" (spelling?)

    Has anyone else used this word?

    Our family always pronounced it "paloorie" although not sure how you actually spell it or even if that was how it was supposed to be pronounced.

    I'm sure it's the same thing.

    Could it be from Palaver, do you think it's Scots or do you think it's from an English word??

    Quite possibly related to palaver. I'd never thought of that.

    I thought it was Scots. It sounds like it should be.

    Got this from my Mum today. No finders fee

    Hi TRC
    I got Sherlock onto this (aka Alison) found this on a Kintyre forum and what she has found is mostly 'paloorie'. She found someone having 'a hairy paloorie' and we think it is Scots and a completely new find.


    I'm going to add it to our word collection for later inclusion in SND.




    Thanks, a lot of these words were missing back in the day so well done!
