    Scottish, he's spelling the accent. Rabbie Burns used to do the same, och aye the noo.

    Rabbie Burns's literary works in Scots had an extensive vocabulary independent of English. Modern Scots, as you have no doubt noticed, is much closer to English but nevertheless still retains some words of its own apart from English with an accent.

    Absolutely. Quite a lot derived from Gaelic, no doubt. However, the specific example that Stu corrected is Middle English.

    However, rather he translated it from current Scots into English with or without a Scottish accent.

    While we're on the subject "och aye the noo" is a time-honoured line used by Scots comics to establich a ridiculous persona.
