Im fur the idea o an artificial wrate form bein createt and fordert and ettle tae yaise ain massel gin a skreive in the leid, but I dinnae think owerfocusin on the Norse elements is the richt wye tae gang, een though yes hiv done a rare job and deserve credit fir it. The ch in "richt" shuild in my view be the stairtin pynt fur aw skreivin in Scots as een though monie fowk dinnae say it the day, its a sound thits tradeitional and thur are monie sounds in staundart Inglis thit bodies dinnae mak whin they spik wae anither tae. Ach stiall ort and keep up the braw work.

language only works if the other person understands what your saying.

making up your own words will get no one anywhere.

towers of babel.
