Product Description


Scots is a distinct language in its own right, entirely separate from Scots Gaelic, developing from Middle English from the Middle Ages. Influences come from as broad a range of sources as French, Flemish, Dutch, German and the Scandinavian languages.

Since the Act of Union in 1707 Scots has been under assault from Standard English, and particularly so in the modern era through the globalisation of culture. This beautiful little book presents Dr Amanda Thomson's carefully collated collection of Scots words for things from the air, the sea and the land, from animals, fish, birds and insects to trees, landscapes and weather.

Hugely expressive and evocative, the Scots words found here are joy to remember or discover for the first time.
