Scots dialects show unusual pronunciation variants in the
case of vowels followed by -r  in the same syllable, e.g.
the "airt" above, but it is difficult to locate information
about such words on your pages that cover the various Scots
dialects. May I suggest that, if possible, you do some
research and then add a special sub-section (in connection
with the section on vowels) to provide some examples of such

I thenk ye kindly...

Tha i air radh.	She'ss efter sayin.	She had said.

this is actually the ROUGH equivalent to:

she HAS said.


the rough equivalent to:

"BHA i air radh" [she was after saying] would be:

she had said.

other points:

the "after" syntax. actually, this comes [probably] from
pre-celtic, or possibly specifically [pre-celtic] pictish,
then into british [="welsh"], spoken in strathclyde before
gaelic came from ireland, and from british into gaelic as
gaelic arrived in strathclyde from ulster with columba. the
scots syntax with AFTER is IDENTICAL to that of welsh, but a
bit different from that of irish, especially non-ulster
irish. i know this, as im a gaelic speaker and a welsh speaker.

btw, your site is great.
