bunnet

A contrib is insisting on a particular definition, which I have placed at nº 2 with the rfv tag. Can this be confirmed? - Algrif 18:12, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

I can find various uses for bunnet, unfortunately not many cites for any very precise one. It seems to include many kinds of headgear, including bonnets, helmets, and some kind of man's tweed cap worn by men in novels who speak with heavy Scots accents. The Essential Scots Dictionary defines it more or less as the stubborn contributor does, but more tersely. A picture would be useful. It is also spelled "bannet". Who's our best man for Scots usage?

A tam o'shanter is apparently a toorie bunnet. A bunnet is more typically a flat cap. DCDuring 18:44, 29 December 2007 (UTC)
