Harry O help me with the Scots language (47) RE: help me with THE SCOTS LANGUAGE 28 Nov 98

All this talk of Scots puts me in mind of the time when all Scots speakers referred to their mither tung as Inglis, Am A no richt ? Which is just an attempt to render "Am I not right ?" in such a way as to enable speakers of other dialects of English to approximate a Scots accent. We could all spell our local variety of English, or Gaelic, or what you will, using the orthographic conventions of another language. But doing so would not convey the "status" of a Language on it. "Un petit d'un petit" got it right, raight, rĂ¡it. Wadges thenk ?
