Do we speak the same language!
It can take some getting used to the Berwick dialect. The following are words you may hear and their meaning. Not sure if the spelling is correct though.
Ladged = embarrassed
Bari= good, nice
Do ya ken=do you know
Rangers Vs. Celtic
OK first off, this isn't as big a problem as maybe being Jewish in Baghdad, or dealing drugs in Thailand, but it's something you should at least be aware of. Berwick is in England, but it's population has a majority of Scots. Should you have the fortune/misfortune to arrive in Berwick, or anywhere in Scotland on the day of an 'Old Firm Match' (a football match between Glasgow Celtic and Glasgow Rangers, they're at least 4 a year) you will find every pub where the match is on divided into groups of Blue (Rangers) and Green (Celtic). Lets not beat around the bush people, this is not a jolly, good natured rivallry, this is arguably the most intensely hate fuelled rivalries in WORLD sport, I exagerate not! Now 9 times out of 10 (unless you're in Glasgow itself) theres no trouble, but just to warn you, if you ally yourself to a team, even for a bit of fun, and your team smashes the opposition, you will become a figure of loating for half the people in the pub, and if you cheer for a Rangers goal next to a celtic fan (+ vice versa) don't expect them to say "yes, I agree, it was a well scored goal"
