  1. [mod]title changed to 'Origin of the term - "Soothmoother"' from 'Soothmoothers' to better reflect his particular thread and the direction it is intended to take 22/10/2009[/mod] I'm doing some research on the word "soothmoother" and I'm trying to gather together some information and opinions on its origins and its use. From what I've been able to gather, the word doesn't seem to be particularly old. I'd be interested to know if any older Shetlinkers remember hearing it before, say, 1960? I'm also keen to hear about its use, either as a description or as an insult. I'd like to hear any anecdotes about how you've heard it used (I heard the phrase 'soothmooth Shetlander' for the first time yesterday, and I'm not even sure quite what that means). Any stories or thoughts would be interesting. (Mods, I know there's a soothmoother thread already but I thought since this query refers to specific research I'm doing, it would be better to separate it. If you disagree, feel free to act accordingly).
  2. I'm glad to see that the debate sparked off by the Guizer Jarl (i.e. the Cultural Attaché for Shetland) as to whether the word 'Soothmoother' can be used or not has eventually died down. I would like to take this opportunity to start it up again........
