The Shetland Dialect, As I See It, or Hear It.
  
 +
That's my pet project.
 +
 +
 +
I believe if we don't use it we lose it.
 +
 +
We all speak it every day but how often do we think about it, and even worse how often is it written down.
 +
 +
When I went to school the dialect was discouraged, but thankfully that is changing. My children are now encouraged to speak Shetland.
 +
 +
I love to read and write Shetland poetry, songs, etc..  It's a hobby,and
 +
I am gathering Shetland words from family and friends, in the hope of keeping the dialect alive, on [[Shetlopedia]] in the [[Shetland Dictionary]] section.
 +
 +
Please add, edit, correct, etc.. as you see fit.
 +
 +
This could be the best chance of survival for the dialect.
 +
 +
Feel free to e-mail me if you are unsure how to add to the dictionary.(Look for the "e-mail this user" thingy on the left of this page).
 +
 +
Even if you have just heard a word and don't know what it means, just let me know what it sounded like and in what context it was used, and I will try to figure it out. I have a friend in Norway who knows a lot about old Norse who can decipher lots of words.
