Airt: Scotis

I think it's wonderful how so many folk out there DO treat
Scots as more than just a degenerate form of English. If
Norwegian and Swedish can be considered languages apart from
each other, there is no linguistical reason that Lallans and
English cannot be. Except of course but for politics.. but
then as we are all aware, Scotland IS a nation, and thus I
think Lallans fulfills all criteria for being a language of
its own. 

The only suggestion I have for this site is to make the
dictionary more encompassing. I am currently cobbling stuff
together from various sites- this site, so good in so many
ways, should have a better dictionary for it. 

Best of luck for the future in this endeavour, and perhaps I
shall join you in it,

Airtit bi: A Freend.

Ever since discovering my Scots heritage about 3 years ago I 
have immersed myself in things scots.  I have developed a 
type of "brogue" which I use while reading or reciting Burns 
poetic works.  (probably a native scot would be bewildered by 
what I speak-but I do it with affection, and respect)  I would 
like to hear a recording (preferably CD) of a male moice of 
someone who is regarded as very good at reciting Burns 
works, in the dialect in which it was intended to be heard. 
Can anyone direct me to a source?
