HASH(0x945f7318) out of 5 stars Useful and Inexpensive Dictionary for Reading Scots 17 Mar. 2012
By Geoffrey B - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This dictionary focuses on a particular dialect of Scots, Doric, for which the author has written two other books (Teach Yourself Doric Pb and [[ASIN:1840170166 Doric for Swots]) that introduce the language in an entertaining vein. Drawing on a variety of textual sources as well as the counsel of fellow speakers of Scots, it is useful for using the two texts, and for working through Scots poetry anthologies. The dictionary is a touch scholarly, indicating sourcing for words particular to certain areas or to dialect other that Doric and providing guidance on where to find standard forms. However, it is not comprehensive. It is a good tool, then, for reading Scots when you need the meaning of words not known. I'd be more careful about using it to write Scots, starting from the English side.
HASH(0x952f28f4) out of 5 stars Compact, Concise and Easy to Use 22 Dec. 2013
By J. R. Trtek - Published on
Format: Paperback
I obtained this book for reference while working on a particular project that required me to employ some Scot terms and phrases. For the former, this proved invaluable. I don't know if there are other, comparable choices out there, but this one worked just fine for me. There are notes on pronunciation and spelling, plus a very short and very general essay on Doric, or Scot. All in all, definitely gweed.
HASH(0x958e7df8) out of 5 stars A useful reference for English-speaking persons who wish to learn more ... 3 Jan. 2015
By Dr. Richard B. Brown - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A useful reference for English-speaking persons who wish to learn more of the use of Doric, a north-eastern Scottish dialect still used by Scottish born people both in Scotland and in other countries. The cost was a little surprising, but the book arrived in good condition, and my wife has enjoyed referring to it, as she corresponds with her relatives in Scotland.

This is a very useful writing resource tool. Invaluable in guiding me to the correct words for my Scots characters in a book I'm writing.
