The Dictionary of the Scots Language is now live online!
"The Dictionary of the Scots Language (DSL) comprises electronic
editions of the two major historical dictionaries of the Scots
language: the Dictionary of the Older Scottish Tongue (DOST) and the
Scottish National Dictionary (SND). DOST contains information about
Scots words in use from the twelfth to the end of the seventeenth
centuries (Older Scots); and SND contains information about Scots words
in use from the eighteenth century to the present day (modern Scots).
These are the most comprehensive dictionaries available for,
respectively, Older Scots and modern Scots, and are therefore essential
research tools for anyone interested in the history of either Scots or
English language, and for historical or literary scholars whose sources
are written in Scots or may contain Scots usages."
