John M. Tait's pretty comprehensive (and often very entertainingly angry) site on the development of language standards for Scots. Lots of useful information and references here from this folksinger's perspective.

Training for the census questions -- but the useful thing is the big collection of recordings of Scots speakers from different areas. (The collection is much bigger than the links suggest; try changing the number in the URL!)
