Doric Language

One of the most unique aspects of the North East of Scotland is the language. Doric is spoken throughout the area but it can vary dramatically from one place to another. In the past, it was frowned upon in schools but now children are actively learning Doric in the classroom. Mark Stephen explores the origins and idiosyncrasies of the language and finds out if there is a bit of a Doric revival afoot.
