Scots English is a cornucopia of gorgeous words, but they tend to be a trifle too theatrical for English people to use without feeling a bit, well, un-English.
On this occasion, though, I think the people of the whole world should throw off their inhibitions and let the word clishmaclaver* fall ringingly from our lips.
Yes, just like that. I know it's a bit long and attention-seeking, but it won't kill us, will it.
What does it mean?
Clishmaclaver means idle talk or gossip.
So it's not even as if anyone's going to lack the opportunity to use it.
Pieter Bruegel the Elder
Word To Use Today: clishmaclaver. This word comes from clish-clash, which is an imitation of the sound gossiping makes, plus claver, which also means gossip.
Yes, the whole thing's been put together entirely for fun. Hurray for Scots!
*You say it KLISHmaCLAYver.
