Ooh, I love Scots! One of my favourite books (no joke) is The Encyclopaedia of the English Language by David Crystal...which is actually a whacking great encyclopaedia, not just a title they chose to make it sound interesting... I've just about read it cover to cover, and I learned a lot about all the different dialects and their influences. I like Scots especially because I can pick the Germanic influence myself without being told; makes me feel all smart like.
My mum's from Lancashire and there are gorgeous Germanic words they use there too...sadly I can't think of any at the moment! I watched Melvyn Bragg's show about the English language a while back and they said something about Scandinavians being able to understand the Northerners because they had so many dialect words in common. I, for one, was impressed!
And being an amateur linguist, I get a lot of fun out of listening to the accents when I watch FotC because I sit there thinking "that's from Scottish English", "that's from Welsh", "that's from southern English" etc.
There are worse hobbies, I suppose... My aunt's actually from NZ but I never gave the accent much thought until I started watching FotC.
I love "They're like, 'where's the caahhr/' and we're like 'whier's the carr\".
