Airt: Aberdeenshire originally, now Wales

Living in Wales it is fascinating to watch how the Welsh 
people have fought for Welsh to be recognised as an official 
language. Now, all bills, all official letters, payslips etc arrive 
in both English and Welsh. Like another of your signees I too 
was brought up in a system where it was not acceptable to 
speak in dialect. I am very concerned that I have much less 
knowledge of the language than my grandmother and my 
children have even less. We are in danger of this becoming a 
lost language - what a pity. Can I refer to Teach yourself Doric 
by Douglas Kynoch? Amusing yet educational!! Thanks for 
this site, I have enjoyed it.

It is as good as a £100 module at Aberdeen University Local 
Studies! Thank-you, Andy Eagle, for coming in on the Moray 
Claik, which was how I found the site. I am a native Scots 
speaker, and will have some work included in the next AU 
collection of Scots poetry for North-east schools. Having been 
educated in a system which prohibited the use of Scots, I 
dinna like usin't amon strangers like yersels.
