It's occurred to me on several occasions that the cadence and flow of
the Scottish and Irish languages (dialects) strongly favors that of the
Southern United States. Do y'all know whether there has been any good
research on this?
By the way, is there a "" listserv in a
digest form? Leaving my computer off since Friday afternoon resulted in
a flood of individual Scotch-Irish emails (about 250) and that would
certainly be more manageable.
Alas, although a Texan by both heritage and choice, I have no recipes
