Ah, yes. That too, although I know even less about Gaelic.... I have a friend who's at Uni in Glasgow studying English Lit and is obsessed with poetry written in English, but written phonetically with a Scottish accent and Scots colloquialisms. Apparently there's loads of poetry done that way. If you don't have a great handle on the accent, though, it's an absolute bastard to read.

Edit: Found this. Not a great example, but an example nonetheless.

Bit whiles she's a bit o a bam
I'se tell ye, aboot that wee lamb,
That wee bam, A ca a pet

She'll bite yer taes, if yer no quick
Bit, then maybes she'll gee ye a lick
Jis like a lucky-bag
Ye never know whit ye'll git
If yi bend ower ti gie hur a pat
Better bi ready, ti shift like a bat
Fur if she gets a hoad o thoan haund
Surley she'll pou it tae shreads

“See thoan bloody cat!,” growls the wife
“Tak it tae the vet, an get it oot o ma face,”
“Nou, Nou,” says I, stricken wi grief
“She'll be guid, wan o these days!,”
“Weel, it better be shin, or am gonny lea!”

That makes very little sense aidan!
I love the scottish accent tho!
Also in slightly related info, i sometimes stick e4c on to see how long i can take it for, plus how many totally english phrases they chuck in.
It's like they're thinking of something to make up and give up and just use english, its amazing.

I'm drunk. not a good idea to go on reuben forum with work tomorrow also!

Robert Burns did alot of written in english but pronounced in a Scottish dialect poetry.

I think he did it to popularise the Scottish dialect as English was seen as more proper at the time, and it was assumed you were poor if you spoke in a Scottish dialect.

All of Irvine Welsh's books are written in Scotish Vernecular, you have to read them with a Scotish accent. When I first started reading them it took me a while to work out what a few words meant;

You Ken? = You know?
Fitba = Football

Fun though once I got into them, I've read them all now.
