What is the difference between ‘Scotch’ and ‘Scottish’?

Post  Lamplighter on Mon Apr 17, 2017 6:10 am

For our friends and readers, so you know not to put your foot in it!   LL   rofl rofl


Learn the difference in meaning between Scottish, Scotch and Scots – and whatever you do make sure you use them correctly!

According to Brewer’s Dictionary of Phrase & Fable, the three adjectives Scots, Scotch and Scottish “all mean belonging to, native of, or characteristic of Scotland”.

The caveat, however, is that “their application varies”. Because these words are steeped in history, their meaning is nuanced, and in some cases, even protected by law.   Link.
