Unless Scots gets a standard written form, English will continue to be the default one and dialects will continue to be Anglicized.

Please stay on topic when responding thanks. The subject is whether Lowland Scots should have a standardized form.

since your so concerned about how we spell our words and how we speak and considering there are loads of local variations id be interested to know what accent you have yourself and where you live

The following video was shared in a Facebook Scots Language group as an example of the Scots language and to me, it sounds like local English with a lot of swearing. Surely there are huge differences between the dialects of English that can be identified as a Scots language and those that are Scots English dialects? It gives the impression that swearing is part of what turns an English language into Scots.

so your not here to discuss it just ramble on about what you think it should be?

thus i would presume....

your not scottish (ie born here)
youve "learned" gaelic because of some dubious "roots" youl be claiming.
so now youl be an "expert" on our language and feel the need to tell the people of THIS country how we should speak and spell our own words (the words youve just learnt)

seen it all before...very boring...bla bla bla youve learned a language..wow

ps seen your vid before too and half of what he says IS in scots so youd better get back to your school books matey
