Chunky "Fit Like?" : : How are you? : : Scottish, North East, Aberdonian, Doric

£35.00

"Fit Like?" asked in big, chunky, two lined letters.

Fit Like?  Is a common greeting around the north east of Scotland, particularly in the Aberdeenshire area. 

It literally translates to "what like?", asked as a question, and really means "How are you?"  or "what's doing?" or "are you fine?" - a casual but warm greeting.  The opening would usually go along the lines of:
"Aye aye"
"Fit like?"
"nay bad"
"Hoo's yersel'" 

For other "weel kent" (well known) Scot's phrases, and everything you need to know about Doric or traditional Scottish turns of phrase, pop over to Mither Tongue
