@Yeti bob - I found it a little ironic that your text "everywhere I've been, is just a rearranged Johnny Cash song "I've been everywhere; which makes what you're doing a Johnny Cash song. You should find and play it when you're on the road.

If you consider Scots its own language rather than a dialect, it's the only language with a high degree of mutual intelligibility with English.

Well, there was a alot of trade b/tn the Hebrides Islands and Ireland for centuries.

@TDK: I can understand Catalan as well as Castillian and Valencian (so, not as well a Latin American dialects). It's sort of nexus Occitanian, Castillian, and Tuscan.

I would consider Scots aa it's own language, as well as Doric. Scots understandable, Doric has an archaic grammar structure. It's considered the fourth language of Scotland, and it's found mostly around rural Aberdeenshire and the NE.
