    Sound to whom? Tha sinn a' cabadaich mu dheidhinn a Bheurla Ghallda an seo. Were discussing Lowland Scots here. I have written to Nicola Sturgeon complaining about the group that were making that claim on facebook and would like to see more people speaking Gaelic and more spending.

        im no sure nicola has much clout on facebook to be honest....though ill mention it to her the next time i see here.

        so if its now lowland scots then why would a city not in the lowlands want to promote it exactly?

        your changing your tune post after post in an attempt to find something to moan about.

        if you want to promote scots then by all means do its original form not in your own made up form that your expecting everyone else to follow.

        as ive said many many times to you...its just no gonna happen

                Th-fronting in the speech of working-class adolescents in Glasgow was reported in 1998, provoking public as well as academic interest. The finding of th-fronting in Glaswegian creates a difficulty for models of language change which hinge on dialect contact associated with geographical mobility since the Glaswegian speakers who used [f] most in the 1997 sample are also those with the lowest geographical mobility. In addition, TH-fronting was reported as "a relatively new phenomenon" in Edinburgh in March 2013.
