Scottish Language is the premier scholarly, peer reviewed journal concerned with the languages of Scotland -- contemporary and historical. As well as Scots, Gaelic and Scottish Standard English, the journal welcomes articles on Latin, Pictish, Norn, British and Old European. Articles on Ulster Scots will also be considered.
