footnotesRegional variations - Sunday: In some areas, Là na Sàbaid (Lit.The Sabbath Day) is used more commonly for Sunday than Didòmhnaich.

''You'' the formal and informal forms: You may have noticed that the questions in this game use the informal form of you, ''thu''. This is because Betty is speaking to only one person and someone who is younger than her, Colin. If Colin was to address Betty, more than one person, or a stranger, he should use the formal form of the word for you, ''sibh''. Dè tha sibh a' dèanamh...? - What are you doing...?
