Spelling Scots

The Orthography of Literary Scots, 1700-2000

Jennifer Bann and John Corbett

Published by Edinburgh University Press

Spelling Scots acts not only as a wide-ranging reference book to the changing orthography of Scots, but also as an outline of the active interventions in the practices that have guided Scots spelling. The book shows how canonical writers of poetry and fiction in Scots from 1700 to the present day have blended convention and innovation in presenting Scots in literary texts and explores the influence of key writers.
