So anerly is the speks.
Some Scots vocabulary: arsoun (saddle-bow), bassynet (helmet), eschell (battalion), hawbrek (coat of mail), qwyrbolle (hardened leather), troppell (troop), vaward (vanguard) and vyre (crossbow bolt).

*Of course, not retained from the Anglo-Saxon.

For the benefit of those unable to access Wikipedia.

You think I speak Early Scots?

I don't think anyone was actually using this thread to try to learn Scots Gaelic, although we found some pretty good material.
I will probably post the remainder of these things into the Anglics thread.

On the subject of early, here's a page on a poem attributed to the earliest (known) Irish writer.

Well, since we've gotten back to Modern Scots:

Maybe I'll post another later.

I have decided to learn Scottish Gaelic.

I'll give you three more Scots words: stoor, oos(e), foosty.
Btw, what's your take on Scots? Do you hear it a lot?

I'm trying to form sentences with "tha", but this V-S-O word order is playing with my mind...

Scottish Gaelic learning material is so little, especially compared to Irish Gaelic, but I've been learning it anyways.

Not only is this Gaelic, it's just beautiful. Or, since it's Gaelic, maybe it's just beautiful by default.

Here are some Scottish expressions of my knowledge:
Fit like? - How are you?
Where ya heading? - In other words where are you going?
Nay Bad - Not bad (something Scots use a lot when they don't like something)
Instead of saying yes they say 'Aye'
Instead of using hi that use 'Hiya'(which I think is also used in American right?
