English - to Vomit

Ulster Scots / Ullans - Boke [ Bok ]  

:/ i thought this was a common word… awkward… clearly only we use it HAHA

Boke is slang in Ireland and Scotland…. It isn’t Ulster Scots….

well according to them it is :/ and now u said it i decided to look it up and it is of Ulster scots origin but some sites say its a slang word from Scotland and Northern Ireland.

'Boke' is a word of Scottish origins, Ulster Scots takes its origins mainly from scotland. It is not a slang word because it is used in every day life as the meaning 'to vomit' and is in the Ulster scots language. It does not take origins from Ireland but Scotland.

“If a Papist should speak to you
In his old Fenian tongue
He will speak of our friendship
Why can’t we be one?
Just you point to the red hand
Topped by the Queen’s Crown
And say We’re side-by-side with Scotland
And they won’t let us down.”
Since ancient times the peoples of Scotland and Ulster have shared close bonds of language and culture, as this Loyalist song “Wee Spot in Europe” points out.
