Ulster-Scots Grammar

“This exhaustive exposition of Ulster-Scots grammar is a much-needed complement to&;and in some ways extension of&;existing work on vocabulary and phonology. Dr. Robinson’s book is surely fit to become the standard reference on this subject, indispensable to any serious study of the language.”
– James Fenton, author of The Hamely Tongue

Ulster-Scots: A Grammar of the Traditional Written and Spoken Languageprovides the first grammatical sketch of Ulster-Scots and documents much of its history. A detailed and accessible account of the variety of Scots spoken in Ulster for four hundred years, this book offers a richer, fuller, more accurate understanding of the linguistic diversity of the island. The book covers spelling and pronunciation; nouns and numbers; articles and measures of time; pronouns and people; adjectives, adverbs, and asking questions; prepositions and conjunctions; verbs; syntax; and includes a reader of Ulster Scots prose.
