Abstract

Say It in Scots is a series of pocket books designed to inform and entertain the reader about the wonderful, rich and varied language of Scots. The Scots language is a world of wonderful, historic and evocative words, full of a rich variety that can fit any occasion. And where better to find this use of Scots than in the land itself. In Scottish Place Names Dr Maggie Scott of Scottish Language Dictionaries takes you around the country from Dumfries to Shetland to explain the meanings of the places that make up today's Scotland. Dr Scott will lead you on a trip to Scotland's towns and cities, up and down the hills and mountains, along the rivers and lochs, through the forests and glens, all the way around the Scottish coast and back to the names of the street where Scots live today.
