I came across this page which talks about the Scots language, although Scots is pretty much a dead language now and people speak English with a Scots dialect. I've never thought about it much but I guess I talk with an accent that would sound really peculiar to people who aren't used to it, although it obviously sounds normal where I live in Scotland. For example... A dea ken - I don't know' Dreich - a sort of wet but not really raining, miserable day Wheesht - be quiet Baffies - slippers There's loads more examples here. Are these words all that unusual to you folks from other parts of the world? What words are used commonly where you live that you won't find in the dictionary?
