Abstract:

This monograph is about how the Scots language is discursively constructed,
both from ‘above’ (through texts such as educational policies, debates in
parliament and official websites) and from ‘below’ (in focus group discussions
among Scottish people). It uses the interdisciplinary discourse-historical
approach to critical discourse analysis to examine what discursive strategies
are used in different texts, and also to investigate salient features of
context. This allows a broader discussion of the role of this language in
Scotland, and how different ways of constructing a language can percolate
through society, appearing in both important, elite texts and discussions
among ordinary people. It thus contributes to the body of knowledge about
contemporary Scots, but also expands the range of possible applications for
critical discourse analysis approaches.
