|TOMORROW'S NEW YEAR'S
comic updated December 30, 2008
You may find yourself wondering, at this festive
time of year, just what the phrase 'auld lang syne' means. Having already
done that particular footwork, I can tell you that it's an old Scotch phrase
meaning 'old times' or 'times gone by.' Thus, 'auld' simply IS an old, Scotch
pronunciation of 'old.' Try the substitution next time you feel your social
calendar needs some ethnic culture:
"How many years auld are you,
"Cripes, Jane's husband looks auld enough to be
"Don't eat that ham in the fridge, it's
Auld -- a word for all the year round.
