Languages of Scotland: Culture and the Classroom.
Matheson, Catherine; Matheson, David
Comparative Education, v36 n2 p211-21 May 2000
Traces the history of usage of two indigenous languages of Scotland: Gaelic, used largely in the Highlands, and Scots, which developed in parallel with English and is often unrecognized as a separate language because of mutual comprehensibility. Examines changing attitudes toward these languages in educational policy and practices, and current efforts toward language revival and maintenance. (Contains 33 references.) (SV)
