What's your hang up about saying SCOTTISH Gaelic? We 
speak Gaelic in Ireland, and they speak Gaelic in the Isle of 
Man. Gaelic is not a language (it's three), Scottish/Scots 
Gaelic is.

Wabmaister: No hang up. I just supposed it would seem as plain as porridge 
That SCOTTISH Gaelic is meant on a website primarily to do with Scotland.
Gaeilge - GĂ idhlig - Gaelic?

I live in North Carolina and I'm trying to write a book and want 
a character, actually three, to be Scottish.  I want to be able 
to make them sound Scottish in the text.  So that they don't 
sound dumb, I need an expert opinion on how to portray them 
correctly.  If anyone can help I would surely appreciate it.  
Thanks!  (Great site by the way!!)

This site has been very useful to me.  I can't speak or write a 
word of Scots, but I've got a boyfriend from Scotland, so 
studying this site has been a great aid to communication in 
the moments that he forgets that I am very very American.

My Granfather (James Kennedy, b. Dumbarton 1895) used 
tae sing this wee dittie:

Whan ye get a toothache
An' yer sufferin frae the peen
Dinnae gae tae the dentist
That's a silly game
Jist full yer mooth wi' watter
Mixed wi' castor oil
An' set abune the fire awhile
Until it cams tae boil!
