The Glasgow ‘toonheid vernacular’ is certainly the most vital and widespread – if least prestigious – form of present-day Scots. No comprehensive description has existed so far, Macauley’s sociolinguistic research having barely scratched the surface. Caroline Macafee’s long introduction to the emergence and present distribution of the variety is not only a memorable feat in itself, it is also closely related to the 73 texts, which include a substantial portion of natural speech and an impressive array of naturalistic and stereotyped language as used in poetry, drama and literary prose.
