What does "Scottish" refer to?[edit]

According to this page, this word originated as "an alteration of Scottish sculdudrie" or "sculduddery".

Yet according to Wikipedia, there is no such language as Scottish. Instead, there are two different Scotland-related languages: Scottish Gaelic and Scots language.

Which of these two languages do the words sculdudrie and sculduddery come from? —This unsigned comment was added by 68.48.89.235 (talkcontribs) at 20:00, 21 August 2009.

Thanks for asking. Neither: Scottish English, aka Lowlands Scots. DCDuring TALK 09:33, 16 September 2009 (UTC)
