But 'n' Ben A-Go-Go is a science feection wark by Scots writer Matthew Fitt, notable for bein hailly in the Scots leid. The novelle wis first settin furth in 2000.

Accordin tae the author, as mony o the sindry byleids o Scots as possible wis uised, includin mony neologisms - imaginin hou Scots micht hae developit by 2090. The lack o a glossary micht be seen as a baurier, but the feck o the wirds shoud be accessible tae maist Scots readers. The reviewer Stephen Naysmith descrives the byleid uised in the beuk as 'a hybrid of Lallans, peppered with wirds from Dundee, Aberdeen and elsewhere'.[1] Houaniver, even for some fowk born in Scotland an familiar wi Scots, the beuk is difficult tae read an borraes liberally frae the graimar o the German an the Dutch for mony o the wirds.
