Hi. Hopefully yous don't mind user pages in Australian English? I am a languages nerd. I'm over-ambitiously learning about 6 languages, and so far I only know about four words of Scots.
I'm mainly here reading. I would like to contribute where I can be helpful, obviously I won't be writing articles, but let me know what is helpful and I'll keep an eye out for things I can do? maybe adding figures from other wikis, or fixing links to matching pages in other languages?
I'm not sure how to compare my Scots skills to my German. I can pretty much completely understand Scots, the few unfamiliar bits i can guess from context. My native language is Australian English, and i'm somewhat familiar with Northern Dialects (bilieds?) of English. Apparently USA-Americans find Scots unintelligibly? But in term of speaking or writing Scots, i know only a dozen or so words that are not also in English.
German i at best half understand, depending on the topic, and i can write or say only very simple things in German. But i know (at a guess) hundreds of German words that are not also in English. In Arabic and Hindi i know about as many words as i know from Scots, and i can read the script, but i understand almost nothing of them.
