This collection comprises 15 essays ranging from the social history of and attitudes towards Scots to the representation of Scottishness in literary language and to modern sociolinguistic work. The uniqueness of the historical and present-day linguistic situation in Scotland makes the volume of particular concern not only to Scotophiles, but also to linguists interested in bidialectalism, language planning, literary dialect, urban surveys, and language and education. The authors include linguistist Scotland, England, the United States, Scandinavia and Germany.
