Adam Gray’s Glossary demonstrates how colourful and diverse is the Scots language, particularly rich in diagnostic words, in the workaday vocabulary of the countryside. Some words are very general and some retain a peculiarly local popularity in both use and pronunciation: spellings are certainly variable! But who can deny the colour and diversity of the Scots language.
