    Its really no hard to read, it is, like Gaelic, phonetic. Your ignorance of the writers of Scots doesn't mean people don't write in Scots, you just don't know about them or more likely choose to ignore them. One of the greatest poets to have lived wrote exclusively in Scots. There have been Booker prize nominees and winners who have in part written in Scots and Scots dialects. To say no one actually writes in Scots couldn't be further from the truth.

    I don't understand how it looks crap when written down, would it be safe to assume you think all non English languages look crap {maybe because you find them hard to read}?
    I like it when folk write like that, if it’s what they do all the time and really don’t see why there’s any need to take issue with it. Each to their own on here, variety is good and if that’s how soneone wants to make their point, then why shouldn’t they?

    WTC: sorry bud, but that phrase “jakey writing” isn’t a good look at all (imo).

    Jakey language worked out well for Irvine Welsh.

    When trainspotting first came out took me a while to get in to the language
    I think it's mostly used in dialogue to show how the characters speak. There's no excuse to use it for anything else.

    It is cringey in the extreme.

    James Kelman did win the Booker prize for his book written in such parlance in 1994.

    I remember some London friends thinking it was so daring and raw ( their words ) that I was truly bemused.

    Write however one wishes. There is always a receptive audience somewhere, for however short a time.
