In turn amusing and serious, this book looks backwards to things and ways of thinking and doing that are interesting in themselves but also illuminate the present. There is too a recurring element of present day use or abuse of the English language that will strike a chord with many. A glossary is provided to explain Scots words and expressions which enrich the text. A unique feature is the invitation to readers to contribute ideas for another similar publication.
