The Celtic dialect called Scots Gaelic, or Erse, was heard
in many parts of the Scottish Highlands, especially in the
Hebrides. Throughout most of the rest of Scotland, however,
a Scottish dialect of English had been spoken almost as long
as in England. This dialect, descendant of the Northumbrian
dialect of Old English, was first known as Inglis and then,
during the eighteenth century, as Scots.
Educated Scots during this period strove to speak and to
write Scots or English with equal fluency. Burns made his
reputation writing Scots poetry, but he also wrote
extensively using formal English diction. Boswell could
easily fall into speaking Scots, but he worked diligently
to eradicate "Scottisms" from his writing. Johnson was
complementing Boswell when he called him the "most
unScottified" Scot he had ever met.
For those of you who have an interest in or are thinking of making a
trip to the Scottish Highlands this year, may I suggest that you take
a look at the following Web Site which is the official on-line
visitor guide to the Highlands of Scotland, put out by the Highlands
of Scotland Tourist Board.
You may also request a copy of the 2002 holiday brochure for the

MY WEEKLY REMINDERS:

not, now would be a good time to do one. And why not update your
Antivirus Program while you're at it, to help ensure that you're not
spreading any unwanted viruses to other members.

from books or records that you would like to share with the members.
Drop me a line with the details and I'll highlight them in an
upcoming WEEKLY UPDATE.
