Historians of Scots language and literature have claimed 'that the vernacular prose tradition died out during the early seventeenth century'. This book presents evidence to the contrary. The Scots language, in its spoken forms which continued to be the language of the people, of the great majority of the Lowland nation, requiring simply the appropriate technical means before it blossomed in a rich variety of speech-based prose form. It surveys the period from 1855 to 1914 and the Great War.
