Article Expansion[eedit soorce]
I was asked by a user here to help expand this article. I'm going to use this talk space to act as a "test area" for me to write in. I can understand Scots just fine, but I dont have enough knowledge to be able to write in it, unless I were to piece together words which I've seen, otherwise I run the risk of looking silly. Feel free to chip in and help.
The Auld Inglis leid is a Wast Germanic leid that wis spak i Breetain atween aboot 425 an 1125. Hit is an early mak o Inglis an Scots, an is sib wi Auld Frisian an Auld Saxon. Wast Saxon wis the heidmaist mak o Auld Inglis in the auncient corpus, includin the epic poem Beowulf, as the Wast Saxons wis the strangest kinrick o thon time, while the Northumbrian dialect o Auld Inglis eventually becam the Scots leid.
O aw the descendants o Auld Inglis, Scots is the maist true tae the oreeginal furm.
