Hello... just wanted to say congratulations on an excellent site. I have been hunting for just such a site for ages and it was a visitor to our own site that pointed to me to you. I have searched through hundreds of suggested links on search engines without success and would suggest that you at least go to the top 10 and get your site indexed on them. You might add meta tags "description" and "keywords" which might help you get found. Anyway... a truly outstanding site and I have put a link to your site from our own wee scots words section which I might add I wouldn't even have created if I'd know about your site :-) Kind regards Alastair

I moved to yorkshire when I was about 4. My whole family are Scottish, I understand completely what they say but wish to respond in their dialect.Once I've finished uni I hope to move back to Scotland to regain the accent I love but sadly lost. Finding this page makes me all the more proud of my heritage.Cheers.
Magic! Made me very homesick (it's been ten years since I lived in Aberdeenshire). The colloquialisms were excellent. Thank you Joan Kirkpatrick Evans

This is a good grammar of Scots but I think more emphasis should be placed on the social issues surrounding the Scots dialect/language - for instance, the use of the spelling system to disguise the similarity between English and Scots pronunciation, and the fact that large numbers of people in the north of England can understand most of Scots. In the light of this, linguistically perhaps Scots is a hard-to-follow dialect of English rather than a language outright.
