Scots is an Anglic variety spoken in Scotland, where it is sometimes called Lowland Scots to distinguish it from Scottish Gaelic spoken by some in the Highlands and Islands (especially the Hebrides). Scots is also spoken in parts of Northern Ireland and border areas of the Republic of Ireland, where it is known in official circles as Ulster Scots or Ullans.
Scholars and other interested parties often disagree about the linguistic, historical and social status of Scots. It has traditionally been regarded as one of the ancient dialects of English but also has its own ancient and distinct dialects. It is often treated as part of English as spoken in Scotland but differs significantly from the Standard Scottish English taught in schools. It has also been regarded as a Germanic language in its own right in the way that Swedish is distinct from Danish. Its subordinate relationship with the English of England has also been compared to that of Frisian being dominated by Dutch in the Netherlands. (See Status below)
Native speakers in both Scotland and Ireland usually refer to the language as (braid) Scots (Eng: Broad Scots) or use a dialect name such as the Doric or the Buchan Claik. The old fashioned Scotch occurs occasionally, especially in Ireland. Some literary forms are often referred to as Lallans (Lowlands).
