What is the chance of accepting T(h)rakia for Thrace? I know about the "English website - English quiz - English names" rule, but still... This is the name of the region in 2 of the 3 listed countries. In the third (Greece) it's Thraki.

Don't want to start a war but, as a Scot, I regard myself and my country as English speakers. We all speak different dialects of it but, last time I checked, we are taught English in the schools and not "Scots" whatever the heck that's supposed to be. Go to Aberdeen where "Doric Scots" is spoken. It's how we speak to each other; it's not how we're taught to speak in the schools. I see "Scots" as just more PC nonsense to make a small group more comfortable in their own skin for which most Scots couldn't give a rat's behind. We back down from no-one and we certainly don't need somebody from London granting us our own "language". Off soap-box.... :)

@Baltimorean Gaelic is not Scots, they are totally different. Scots is a Germanic language very close to English (or even a dialect, depending on your point of view); Gaelic is a Celtic language related to Irish.

@Highlander29 Scots was the national language of the country before the union, with a standard written version and it was distinct from English. However, the intervening period has seen Scots and Standard English converging but they are not the same. There is no PC nonsense though (and it certainly isn't a London thing, it's Scottish people who want more status of Scots, English people couldn't give a ****), there is no clear way of distinguishing a dialect from a language: there's as much difference between Scots and English as there is between Swedish and Norwegian, and they are considered separate languages (in other words, it's politics as much as linguistics). I do find it strange how people are so willing to dismiss the language (in the broadest sense of the word) of the country's national poet!

Polish or Scots? It's one or the other, right? Why ask for an answer then accept 2 completely different responses when one is clearly wrong based on the numbers?

Because Scots is usually considered a dialect of English, not a language.

No, Gaelic and Scots are two completely different languages. I have to say I'm surprised if that really is the case that 2.5% of the UK population speaks Scots. Assuming most are in Scotland, and given Scotland has only 8.4% of the UK's population, that would mean nearly 30% of Scots speak the Scots language, which I find very difficult to believe.

Never seen it spelt that way once. I imagine Greeks pronounce it "lesvos", but it's always spelt with a B or a Beta.

Actually, if you Google it -- you will see it as Lesvos, as well. On the official Visit Greece site, it's with a V too. Both are (or have been made) acceptable.

True, you can definitely spell it both ways. There's enough examples for either spelling online.

And it will stay that way. The dialect is called Scots, not Scottish. Even allowing Scots is pushing it since it's probably just a dialect of English.
