    Hey Robbie, did you read about this Scots dialect that just went extinct? Last speaker died at age of 92. Don't know how many dialects there are of Scots language. Do you speak one of them?

    Here is the link to the story:

    I know a builder from Cromarty, I used to meet him in Perth every year, his wife was a
    witness but he wasn't and his dialectal was very distinct and very strong and even I
    had difficulty making him out sometimes, awesome dude though. He invited me up to
    go on his boat but its a fair drive from Glasgow. Its quite interesting, I can tell where
    people are from within my own city for even within each local there is a different tone.
    I myself speak a kind of guttural Glaswegian, and being a hick its a little different from
    the city centre shall we say primarily because of a huge Irish influx, my grandparents
    were Irish as are half the little town of Kirkintilloch, where I live. The People of Perth in
    my opinion speak the cleanest and most beautiful English anywhere in the UK, they
    have none of the slang or guttural sounds of Glasgow, it has a gentle lilt but not
    obtrusive.
