Translated by Irvine Welsh?

"That radge coont Jones ay the Manor Farm farkin' locked up the hen-house o'er night, likesay, but 'es too blootered ta remember tha farkin' pop-holes. Ah telt ya ta mind the farkin' pop-holes ya doss coont! Wi tha light fi tha lantern dancin' fi side ta side, likes, he lurches across tha yard, kicked oof haes boots, drew hisself ay last gless ah pish fi tha barrel down in tha scullery n' went up ta bed ta join that snoring slag Mrs. Jones."

I had this plan where we translate Atlas Shrugged into Chinese, Korea, and Russia, then we parachute balefuls of copies of it into those countries until a generation of libertarians rise up to ruin their economies.

Anybody can put up a website.

There are websites saying Biden is a lizard person.

You sound like a lowlander with a chip on his shoulder. You probably think the Scots invented bagpipes and tartan.

That website is hosted on a .ac.uk address and is run by the University of Glasgow. So you know, actual academics who understand linguistics and language.


Scots is a language and denying it either ignorance or classism.

Gaelic is just one of the languages of the colonisers of Britain, the only native languages left are Cornish and Welsh as Cumbric and Pictish are now dead. Even the name Scotland is derived from the colonisers.


Scotland is more than just the Highlands, just like it is more than just the central belt.

If by colonisers you mean going back to the 5th Century, then yes it's an imported language. But there wasn't a Scotland until the 9th Century, so Gaelic was spoken there before there was a Scotland.
