The ten best Scottish words

Clare Smith has fun in the Scotsman as she nominates her ten best Scottish words: bauchle, blether, dreich, fankle, gallus, mooch, pockle, slitter, wabbit, and wheesht. I knew only blether, gallus, and mooch (Western meaning, which I believe is the only one used in the US).
