Cncise Scots Dictionary

We are delighted to announce that the eagerly awaited second edition of the Concise Scots Dictionary ('CSD2') the definitive single-volume dictionary of Scots, is due to be published by Edinburgh University Press at the end of October.

Fully updated and packed with fascinating insights, CSD2 will be an indispensable addition to the bookshelf of anyone interested in the rich heritage of the Scots language.


Plans are well underway for a launch in Edinburgh in early December. Invitations will be sent to our friends and supporters once the details have been finalised.

Buying CSD2

Even if you can't attend the launch event, you can pre-order your copy of CSD2 from Edinburgh University Press at a discounted price of £20.99.
