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.

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.
