Originally published in 1921, this book was intended for non-Scottish students of Scottish literature as a guide for recitation and declamation of Scottish pieces. The text is divided into three parts: the first gives the phonetic symbols for the sounds of modern Scots, the second contrasts Scots grammar with standard English usage and gives illustrations from Scottish literature, and the third contains extracts from modern Scots writers with phonetic transcriptions on the facing page. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the pronunciation of Scottish literature or in Scottish phonetics more generally.
