hello and keep up the good work!!

Excuse my  English, I have, after looking over your pages
noted quite a number of detractors of "Scottish Language"
from both Scots and non Scots and I would like to make a few
points.

1. There has never as far as I know been a rationalisation
of spelling of the Scottish language.

2. We don't appear to have a reliable and consistent
dictionary of scots.

My last bit (neerly feenished) would you all  think on the
following sentance; "THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A SCOTTISH
LANGUAGE"  -- The first seven words in this sentance all
come from the follwing in order of age youngest first....
Old English/Old Frisian and on down to Gothic and before.
The word "scottish" I believe has latin roots.
The word "Language" I believe comes from Latin via Old French.

By the perverse logic of our Scots language detractors 
does this mean that there is no such language as "English"?

All the best to everyone.
Tam
