The Mother Tongue

People sometimes refer to the Scots language as 'the mither tongue' (mother tongue). We are grateful to J Derrick McClure (University of Aberdeen) - a long-standing scholar and campaigner for Scots - for contributing his article on The Mother Tongue. Please feel free to read or download the PDF below which is available in both English and Scots versions.
