    langsyne also lang syne (lng-zn) Scots (蘇格蘭語)

    lang = long 很久,很長

    syne = sinice 往日

    adv. Long ago; long since.   副詞,很久以前

    n.  Time long past; times past.名詞,舊日時光


    [Scots lang syne, from Middle English lang sine : long, lang, long; see long1 + sine, since (contraction of sithen, sithens; see since).]

    "Auld Lang Syne" is a poem and song by Scottish poet Robert Burns (1759–1796), although the same phrase is used in similar poems by Robert Ayton (1570–1638), Allan Ramsay (1686-1757) and James Watson (1711) as well as older folk songs predating Burns.[1]

    It is well-known in many English-speaking countries, and it is often sung at the stroke of midnight on the 1st of January, New Year's Day. Like many other frequently sung songs, the melody is better remembered than the words, which are often sung incorrectly, and seldom in full.

    The song's (Scots) title may be translated into English literally as "old long since", or more idiomatically, "long long ago" [2] or "days gone by". In his retelling of fairy tales in the Scots language, Matthew Fitt uses the phrase “In the days of auld lang syne” as the equivalent of “Once upon a time.” In Scots syne is pronounced like the English word sign — IPA: [sain] — not [zain] as many people pronounce it.
