Scottish poet Hugh McMillan will read us one of his poems today. We’ll talk about the Scots language as well as aspects of life in Scotland: language, arts, culture, history, geography, politics, and more. You’ll learn about how Scots is a sister language to English, with its own vocabulary, and how even apostrophes can be an issue to be debated. You can find much more about Hugh McMillan and his work at his website. Also visit his YouTube channel, where you can hear many, many other poets reading their work. If you would like to learn more about Scotland, Hugh suggests these sites: Electric Scotland, Hidden Scotland, and the Association for Scottish Literary Studies. Finally, the poem read at the end of the video is by Josephine (Josie) Neill. You can find more of her work here and here (available only in the UK).
