Great post frae WGD. “Scotland would not exist without Gaelic or Scots. The languages made this country what it is, Gaelic brought Scotland into existence, Scots was the language of the Scottish state. They made us who we are, and they are proper to Scotland and nowhere else. Only Scotland can save them. A vast amount of Scottish literature and writing was composed in Gaelic and Scots, and if we lose the languages we lose that part of ourselves. Gaelic and Scots form the roots of the Scottish tree, without them the tree dies and we become a parasitical culture”.
