The first decade of the new Scottish Parliament has seen the
emergence of a new-found national confidence. 'Scottishness' is
clearly alive and flourishing. This book offers new and detailed
insights into Scottish language and its usage by the Scottish
press. To what extent does the use of identifiably Scottish lexical
features help them to maintain their distinctive Scottish identity
and appeal to their readership? Which Scottish words and phrases do
the papers use and where, is it a symbolic gesture, do they all
behave in the same way, and has this changed since devolution?
Combining analysis of broad trends with detailed discussion of
individual Scottish words and phrases, its timely publication
coincides with a period when interest in things Scottish is at an
all time high.
