100% correct Belle for Quines and Loons, Doric is I believe more Northern Aberdeenshire than Aberdeen

So do  Doric Columns appear in the Aberdeen press?

Being a chemist, Catty will enjoy your use of the word ionic Belle! Perhaps he has ironic ionic icons made of boric and carbolic acids at the top of his Doric columns.

The projecting part of a van body over the cab is called the 'luton' in England because that town is reputed to be the first place it was used. In Scotland the hauliers called it the 'dookit' or something very much like that. I think I've heard a pigeon cote called that as well north of the border.

You are right Stanley, the doo hoos is one name for it (dove house) as is doo cot, which becomes dookit ...

Lovely explanation Belle. Any connection with the surname 'Ducket'? Just looked it up in Reaney and Wilson and there is a tenuous bird connection. Pld French 'duquet was a diminutive for 'duc' (Duke) also used as a name for the owl as it was thought to be a leader or guide of other birds.

Can there be a connection between swilling (cleaning with water), and sweeling ('cleaning' with fire)?

I've always thought so David because they are basically the same action. Very ancient word noted as far back as 900ad, 'swilen' as a verb. Seems to be uniquely English Language.
