Usage notes[edit]

By itself, escocès usually indicates Scots, but context may indicate a different sense or even a combination of senses. In older texts, escocès would be more likely to refer to Scottish Gaelic than to Scots. The use of escocès for Scottish English usually only occurs among those who consider Scots to be an English dialect rather than a language of its own.
