Was more of a (failed) jokeBy modern Scotland I mean that most Scots today will carry on speaking the language of convenience. Whether that language is Queens English or American English, I'm not sure but it definitely isn't Gaelic.
I don't speak it (can usually understand them however), but I think it is a little closer to English than to Dutch.Willemple.
I read somewhere that modern English and therefore Scots is most closely related to Frisian. As a you are a speaker of Frisian, I would be interested to know whether you agree with that or not.
But it is hard for me to say as I am rather fluent in both, so I switch subconsciously. Like when I am writing this post I am thinking in English, while I havent actively changed my mindset or something similar.
