  1. As I know there are at least 2 scots frequenting these boards (one of them even posting most of the news) I figured it was worth to post this..

    The Reg has a story about The scottish parliament in scottish, and how they are updating their pages with scottish version is well worth a read!
    And if you want "tae hae a keek" at the scottish parliaments pages in scottsh, click here.

    And Mict, this time the links does work ;) :D

    For any Scot's here, is their a Scottish version of Gaelic? or is it just the same as Irish, i know Welsh is different.

    Thanks very much, but I don't really care. And I am Scottish. But I like to think of myself primarily as a citizen of the planet.

    I at least got a laugh out of some of the translations..
    Besides, it was nice to see how closely related some norwegian and scottish words are :)
    (Those marked in italics are quite close in both writing and pronunciation)

    You mean Tatooine, or are we talking much closer to home? :D

    Rory7 the name I have always heard for scotish is Scots Gaelic so yes I would presume that both "Irish" and "Scotish" are very close and probalbly derive from the same language.
