Hi! I hope it's OK if I write in english here. I have a really important wish: Friends of my sisters will move from germany to scotland for job-reasons pretty soon. Their baby-daughter and my sisters baby-son are best friends. Before they leave, we would like to give her a t-shirt saying " Hands off, I'm engaged!" in scots. Is there anybody out there who could translate that for me asap? I really appreciate your help! mail your translation to: firstname.lastname@example.org thanks! thomas Hou aboot Haunds aff! A'm trystit! Wabmaister

The site is wonderfull, very rich, gives me a good idea of what Scots is like; I hope even to go Scotland this autumn and see everything with my own eyes(and hear with my ears,too).
This web site is great! I loved going thru the different sections and seeing the connection between Scotland and the Norse influence on the language. Barn in Swedish is child=bairn. Cool. I noticed to a lot of the constructions in English in the American south is similar to some of the different constructions used in Scots English. That makes sense since lots of us came from Scotland. I am bookmarking this page as I haven't had time to read it all.
Some interesting reading, thanks.
