Scottish Language journal article re. ‘Doric’ label

I’m a bit late in getting round to posting this but I was delighted to have an article – ‘What’s in a name? The prevalence of the ‘Doric’ label in the north-east of Scotland’ – published in Volume 40 of the Scottish Language journal this summer.

The paper examines the history, development and present-day perceptions of the term ‘Doric’ in relation to the North-East Scots dialect. As well as touching on the issue of ‘Doric exceptionalism’, the article presents ‘Doric-ness’ as a multi-faceted marker of local identity and one which retains real social currency among local speakers.
