Subject: (whorl) pig's dialect

hello all

there's no doubt whatsoever that Pig's dialect is intended to be Scottish, as opposed to Irish or
'dinna fash' and other similar expressions are giveaways (to British ears, at least). I don't have
the book in front of me, but the author even goes as far as to explain that when Pig says  'wind' it
sounds like 'fiend'. Has anyone got an idea as to which part of Scotland he's from? It sounds
reasonably old-fashioned to me, I think.

Pig as godling sounds like a plausible hypothesis - after all, the chapter's title could easily be
read as referring to more than just the last paragraph, couldn't it?
