Peever

Ye micht yaise a different spelling ...sic as 'peiver' or 'pavor'

In the 'Dictionary of the Scots Language' ye wull find quotations that refer tae the flat stane that wis yaised in the gemm o hopscotch as a 'peever'. Some dialects yaise it for the gemm itsel. Ye micht hae heard the expression 'peevery beds' yaised tae describe the chalked pattern o squares that is gemm is played on.

 

DSL includes the phrase 'to lift one's peever' 1936 West Lothian that means tae tak yersel aff in a huff, tae 'opt out'. Dae ye yaise that phrase in a different wey?
