No kennin muckle aboot it thon soons mibbies mair like Bokmål, but monie fowk here’ll be mair enlichtent than masel…

A nynorsk for Scotland?With the Scottish independence debate we hear a lot about the Scandinavian connections and (dis)similarities. I do have my opinions on many of those despite being completely unqualified, but here’s one thing that strikes me and that I do know something about: how many people (apart from Guy Puzey and Øystein Vangsnes) have commented on the parallels between Norway and Scotland with regard to their linguistic landscape?
