We sought permission to use the recordings. For some we did not manage to locate the rights holders. If you are a rightsholder who feels that your recording should not be used here, do not hesitate to let us know and we will be happy to remove it.

The recordings may be reached via the pop-out menu on the left.

The Scots transcriptions use the orthographic conventions described in Wir Ain Leed. They are a transcription of what was said, not an attempt at phonetic accuracy. The poems or stories may have originally been written using other conventions.

Scots has been increasingly influenced by Standard English for the last few hundred years. Obvious standard English forms are spelt using those conventions.
