Blyde

On Shetland there are some 20 – 22 dialects. That is quite a lot for this group of islands. On the larger islands they each have their own dialect. On the Mainland 11 different dialects can be distinguished.
In Friesland, where I live, they speak a recognized language. But some words in that language are very much like words in other languages and dialects.
Bliid is the Frisian word for ‘Happy” (pronounce it as bleed). In Shetland the word for Glad / Happy is Blyde (same sound as in Hide).

Knitting Shetland Lace is what makes me very happy / glad.
