Kynoch D., Hamilton J. Teach Yourself Doric: A Course for Beginners
Kynoch D. , Hamilton J. Teach Yourself Doric: A Course for Beginners. - Scottish Cultural Press, 1994. - 88 p.

(Учебник одного из диалектов скотса (англо-шотландского языка). )

This Doric primer appears at a time when the considerable threat to the North-east tongue seems to be matched by a determination that it should not be allowed to die without a struggle. The language used here is, generally speaking, the lively, if somewhat diluted, form of Doric spoken in the city of Aberdeen, though account has been taken too of the rich veacular of the rural hinterland; and there's much here that the whole North-east coer should find familiar.

Other than stimulating interest in the Doric, the main aim of the book is to entertain. There is a long tradition of the use of Doric for comic purposes; and, if the language is in need of a tonic at the present time, laughter may be an appropriate medicine. At the same time, the grammar is genuine (or is intended to be) and may provide a useful basis for anyone bold enough to lea Doric. Where language-teaching has been sacrificed to levity, may the serious student forgive.

With great temerity (and perhaps foolhardiness), I have abandoned the standard form of Scots spelling in favour of a style which emphasises Doric's uniqueness among Scottish dialects, as well as highlighting its idiosyncratic pronunciation. It is to be hoped that any initial resistance to the changes on the part of the Doric-speaking reader will quickly disappear and that any inconsistencies of spelling will be forgiven. The appearance of some words seemed too familiar to change.

Students may wish, on completing the course of study, to retu to this foreword and translate it into Doric. On the other hand, they may not.
