Ah dinnae ken what a' this blether aboot the al Scots tongue his tae dae wi' this wee bit grun cried Ulster. Sure a bhoy wid tell ye, gin a shilling forbye in hees han' , that nocht but they folks hae ocht tae dae wi'it. And noo there's a gran' thing for naebody telt me that at the skil or in the playgrun or the pub. For ye ken not the helf o' it. Here yees are grovelin at the taes o' a tongue oot fae whence come yer ain fethers. Erse and kennt as the like in Scotland 'till but twa hunner year ago. And yees are that contrary and crabbit that ye hae missed the fu' pint o'it. W'r tongue is what was gaen us. It is no a tongue for sake o' a' ither body haen yin o' thir ain and it is no a tongue tae be barterin' wi'. Sure shame on yees. It gans tae my shoon, it turns my een, sharpens my lugs, directs my neb and is the very watter that taks the drouth oot o' life. Sure if I read anither gowpit line oota ye glypes like dugs efter a stick, like weans at their mither pinnies, sure I'll fair boke.

Maybe somebody can help me. I'm Corine from Holland. (Excuse me for my bad English). We are going te raise (??) dogs; the West Highland White Terrier, and we are searching for a name (not the name of 1 dog, but I dont know how you call it, in dutch it is kennel). Because the westie come from Argyll, we want a fitting scottisch name. We like the Highlands very much en also like stormy weather. So a name with something as "glen" in it, or ??? Who can help me?? And the second problem is: how do I pronounce it??? If I get an answer, please in easy English ?? Thank you very much.
