Scots Language Centre Centre for the Scots Leid

DSL site updated

16th May 2019

Recently improvements have been made to the online Dictionary of the Scottish Language / Dictionar o the Scots Leid. Visitors are now able to limit the Quick Search facility to pre or post 1700 data and there is a sign-up option available for the newsletter. Also, a comprehensive listing of publications by Scottish Language Dictionaries has been added. Among the more significant changes are the updates by Dr Caroline Macafee based on material by the late AJ Aitken. These include a detailed review of the past and present status of Scots and recent political developments such as the Council of Europe Charter. In addition there is an accessible and detailed phonetic description of the language, all of which will undoubtedly prove most useful to anyone engaged in Scots language studies.
