Does the phrase “let’s meet aw the troops at the pub before it gets hoachin’!” mean anything to you? As YouTuber Korean Billy explains, in Glaswegian dialect, it means “let’s meet our friends at the pub before it gets busy.”

In a December 29 video, Korean Billy tackled weird and wonderful slang from Glasgow, Scotland, and introduced viewers to words like “didnae” (didn’t), “baltic” (very cold) and “ginger” (orange fizzy soda), and his efforts have been well received by native speakers in the comments section, who’ve commended him for his attempts to speak like a true Glaswegian.
