Ulster-Scots Writers’ Guide

The Ulster-Scots Writers’ Guide is intended to provide both learners and native speakers with easy reference access to everyday Ulster-Scots words and their spellings. The English to Ulster-Scots glossary is unique as all other Ulster-Scots dictionaries are Ulster-Scots to English. The spelling guide explains those Ulster-Scots spelling rules that have evolved from traditional conventions into consistent and agreed standards for the modern language. These standards are also recommended for use in the classroom, in Ulster-Scots writing competitions, for the quality assurance of official Ulster-Scots translations, and most importantly for Ulster-Scots creative writing contributions for publication. Any aspiring writer only wanting to use this handbook as a quick ‘spell-check’ for individual words will find that the glossary at the beginning of this book provides a simple reference ‘index’ to spelling as well as vocabulary.
