Dealing with grammar in a modern way, with modern terminology, this book gives readers an understanding of the way language works. Providing readers with the vocabulary to think about and discuss Scots, English and other Modern languages, Modren Scots Grammar fits with the Curriculum for Excellence in that it provides the grounding for readers to undertake further exploration and discover language for themselves. Furthermore, this book aims to give readers confidence in using the Scots language. It is important for young Scots today to realise that Scots is not just bad English, but a language in its own right. Increasing understanding of the differences between the two will improve the use of both.

About the Author:

Bob Dewar was born in Edinburgh. He was first published nationally when he was sixteen. He has had exhibitions in Edinburgh and Italy, and for fifteen years did political and social commentary for The Scotsman.

Review:

This useful addition to the study of urban Scots dialects opens up the filed of linguistics to the general reader, combining the expertise of a linguist and a voice coach. Pronunciation in Aberdeen, Glasgow and Dundee are considered, offering insights into how Scots is spoken today. SCOTS MAGAZINE
