Post Come join a facebook group for a Standard Scots Spelling

I have made a standard spelling for the Scots language which draws from Older Scots texts but with a few innovations to fully represent spoken Scots. I am currently writing a dictionary for it! you can see it on this page and feel free to join if you want.

in the description on the left is a link which takes you to a guide explaining this orthography

We had a great Lallans/doric/Auld Scots dictionary on the late Firstfoot site many years ago.

ive read quite a few books with various scots dialects and usually get the hang of it after a while though but trying to read
