cauld

ScotsEdit

PronunciationEdit

  • IPA(key): /kɔld/ (Central Scots and some Southern Scots dialects; [d] omitted in some dialects)
  • IPA(key): /kald/ (Doric and most Southern Scots dialects; [d] omitted in Doric)

The second pronunciation occurs in Scots dialects with the cat-caught merger (where both are pronounced /kat/; not to be confused with the cot-caught merger), but the first occurs in those who have it.

AdjectiveEdit

cauld (comparative caulder, superlative cauldest)

  1. Cold.
