Reviews - What do customers think about The Concise Scots Dictionary?

Mairi Robinson, ed. in chief, Concise Scots Dictionary (Edinburgh University Press, 1985)  May 15, 2007
The Concise Scots Dictionary presents an excellent 816-page source of definitions for Scots words. It also contains 39 pages on the history of Scots, with a clear explanation of the dictionary's format. Two appendices explain Scots currency, weights and measures, as well as churches in Scotland. I have bought it because I rely on it constantly as an invaluable aid to researching Scots history, with particular reference to the Weir family.
endlessly valuable  Apr 14, 2005
Edinburgh University Press puts out this super Scots Dictionary. It's often very hard to find good a Scots Dictionary or a Good Gaelic Dictionary. This one is VERY good. 820 pages worth, not a little pocket size. It has meanings, spelling variants, pronunciation guide, information on when and were words are used denoting area and districts, grammatical information, and idioms & phrases. What I like best about it - entomologies of the words. So many dictionaries leave off the origins of words, which is so very important when writing history and historical fiction.

It's painstakingly edited and without flaws from start to finish. Best of all it's not teeny print. The print is very clear and easy on the eyes!

Highly recommended.
