Why is "my arse is frozen" not correct?
It is correct, surely? The only tricky one would be "My bum is frozen" because, for USA users, that would imply keep a tramp in the woodshed.
Hey keep your regionalism to yourself ;-) I am an American and I KNOW what a 'bum" is. And arse.
I just love the expression.
My Dad had an expression similar to this: "As cold as a well-diggers ass in the Klondike."
"my buttocks are frozen" would be more accurate in English?
Yes, and I would advise urgent medical assistance as well.
I think "My bottom is frozen" should be acceptable.
Should be plural!
Not so. Yer arse is singular.
The Angus Watson dictionary gives reòhta for frozen with 'tha mo chasan reòthta' as an example.
Oh my. This cracks me up.
Dwelly has "reothte" (with accent which I can't do on my laptop here) - you mark that wrong. Often find Am Faclair Beag has different spellings
Earlier I had - seall, tha mo thòn reòthte - marked correct
Now - tha mo thòn reòthte - marked wrong. Why
