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


Hi, Mo, Delighted to make your acquaintance. I have absolutely nae bo'er wi' fawks leid, and I take your point completely. As a Linguist, my prime concern is with language as a system of systems. It's when people misuse languages for political ends, appealing to pseudo-linguistic criteria to lend credence to their very often specious demands that I react. Witness the current campaign in Northern Ireland at the moment to have "Ulster Scots" accepted internationally as a fully fledged language. Lang may your lum reek wi' ither fawk's caw'. Harry
