    Origins of the Scottish language and accent

    Many people think that Scots is merely a dialect of English, but others believe that Scots is a language of its own and that the Scots we hear today is Scottish Standard English.

    Scots came from the Angles, who came to Scotland in 600AD. By the 7th century Scotland’s people were speaking Northumbrian Old English, Celtic and the Pictish language. However Gaelic speakers began to settle in the west and the east of Scotland and within a few hundred years it had spread southwards to the lowlands and parts of Northumberland then became Scottish.

    At the beginning of the 11th century, many Scottish people spoke Gaelic, apart from the settlers in the far north who were influenced by Viking invaders and spoke Old Norse. By the 14th century most people living in the eastern side of Scotland were speaking English.

    The Scottish language by this time had influences from Norse, German, Latin and French due to alliances and trade. Scottish was spoken mainly in the highlands and in the lowland areas of Carrick and Galloway.

    The Middle Scots period began in the 16th century when the language was differentiated from English by calling it Scots-Gaelic or Scottish English. Many Scottish speakers moved across the sea to settle in Ulster in Northern Ireland and the dialect there became known as Ulster-Scots.

    Slowly Scottish people began to speak more in English, which led to the creation of Scottish-English, although they retained their distinctive accents.

    The team at Matinée are fantastic to work with. They are really communicative, helpful and turned around the work as quickly as possible. I have no complaints at all and we will definitely be getting back in contact when we next need subtitles.

    Friendly and efficient service

    The speed of response, and friendly, efficient service from all staff was quite exceptional. Matinee particularly stands out by putting the customer’s needs first, even when the job is relatively small and a bit of a technical challenge. I would strongly recommend Matinee for any subtitling work.
