Um, almost the entire Scots Wikipedia was written by someone with no idea of the language – 10,000s of articles
It gets delicious too:
That view was backed up by the chief scientist at text analytics company Luminoso, Robyn Speer, who noted that several large language detectors use Scots Wikipedia as a reference.
“I believe that the cld2, cld3, and fastText language detectors all have Scots (sco) as one of the languages they claim to detect, and all of them are getting their belief about what Scots is from Wikipedia,” she noted.
In other words, fake Scots language is rapidly becoming real Scots online. And all because of a prolific apparent non-Scot.
