As part of this year's census people in Scotland will be asked to say if they can understand speak, read and / or write Scots. :

All the folk who can't speak it will think they can, and those that can will think they can't. I wonder if they'll even themselves out.

I'm sceptical of all figures on Lowland Scots, because of this, more so than Gaidhlig.

Ah think it's a pretty gid idea tae be honest; it lets folk ken that they hiv their ain leid, and gives them a chance tae recognise it in a census. Albeit I think Gaelic is maist important fur the future o Alba, ah reckon fur those o us wham dinnae ken beyond basic Gaelic (although am trying tae remedy this), Scots leid gies us a sense of oor ain leid being distinct fae inglis (a leid that most fowk ken awready tae some extent) rather than seen as jist inglis wi bad grammar an slang. In ma personal opinion an Independant Alba should hae a place in it's hert fur baith Scots leid an the Gaelic Leid.
