Shetland ForWirds

"We aim to promote and celebrate the use of written and spoken Shetland dialect as a valued and essential element of Shetland’s distinctive heritage and culture.

In our website you can listen to the dialect and see it written.

If you’re interested in the history of the dialect or just curious about words, go to John Graham’s dictionary; if you want a taste of dialect literature, there’s poetry, prose and drama to choose from; if you want to find out what we sound like in conversation, click on the map and listen to people who live in different parts of Shetland."
