Such a Bonny, Couthie Lad: TAE Word for the Day

Standard

BAFTA2010_candid13dd

Richard as his usual friendly and genial self on the BAFTA red carpet.

couthie: (adj.) agreeable; genial; kindly.

Couthie stems from the Old English word cuth, originally meaning “to know.” It arose in the 1700s in Scotland in the sense of “agreeable.”

When I think of Richard in his encounters with fans, whether on the red carpet, or outside of a TV studio, on a film set, or otherwise, I think of how sweet and pleasant┬áhe always appears to be. I’d say that bonny lad is downright couthie.

Thank you, Richard, for being so couthie to all the Ardent Armitage Aficionados out there!
