Tha Fower Gospels

Tha Fower Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John in Ulster-Scots is the first translation of the Four Gospels into Ulster-Scots. It is the fruit of the labour of several groups of Ulster-Scots volunteers from counties Antrim and Down, working since 2006 under the direction of professional Bible translators, Philip and Heather Saunders, and has been published by Ullans Press, the imprint of the Ulster-Scots Language Society. It is available for sale from Amazon: - order here.

The Ulster-Scots Academy is currently working on the digitisation of Dr Philip Robinson's seminal Ulster-Scots Grammar and the English/Ulster-Scots part (with circa 10,000 entries) of a two-way historical dictionary of Ulster-Scots. These projects are planned to be completed and available on the site in 2016.
