In fairness, 84.135, there's mair nor that (dis Ulster Scots no hae inflectit be an forms like binna? amang a few ither grammatical differs -- canna mind nou). A agree tho that there no muckle differ atween Ulster Scots an Central Scots. No shuir aboot lairnin materials, but for an owerview o Ulster Scots A think the maist weel-kent an authoritative wark is Robinson, Philip S. (1997). Ulster-Scots: A Grammar of the Traditional Written and Spoken Language. Ullans Press. Amazon disna hae it in stock but A ken there a few copies in Embra University Librar -- mibbes some ither university librars haes copies, gin ye'r in onie poseetion tae leuk in sicna place.

PS Juist seen that ye bide in Canadae, Crazygraham. No shuir if the Robinson beuk will be that easy tae finnd in Canadae. Dinna ken onie online resoorces A'm afraid, apairt frae thaim that the airticle airts til awready (an as A'm shuir 84.135 will be fawin ower hissel tae tell ye, ye shuid tak oniething the "offeecial" Ulster-Scots agency says wi a pinch o saut).

Efter leukin on amazon.ca, A fun that the beuk is actually available here in Canada. Oniewey, thank ye for the recommendation. A'll be sure tae order it as soon as A can. Maist wabsteids A've veesitit jist gie ye a brief innin tae the historie o the leid bit nae ony real information aboot hou tae spaek the leid itsel. A ken whit ye're sayin aboot the "Boord o Ulster-Scotch". A got an idea aboot the inaccuracies o it whaun A gied there an see'd a curn o fowk dancin aroond in kilts in the backgrund. Fae whit A ken aboot the history o the Ulster-Scots fowk that seemed lik a muckle contradiction whaun it comes tae their heritage. ;) Crazygraham

That looks more like Yorkshire dialect "oop ye gaw" would be better suited to a quote from a Barnsley miner to their work-colleague heading back to the surface. Seamusalba 12:17, 15 Apryle 2011 (UTC)[Replie]
