Word of the Week

loupin:

From a Scots word for jump, this is used to mean extremely painful: “Ah bet yer heid’s lupin efter last night.”

It can also mean infested (as in “Look at that wean clawin’ her heid.  She must be loupin.”) or very busy with, full of:  “The toon’s loupin wi’ Welsh rugby supporters.”

Hear it.
