The year 2010 was named "Orkney Year o' Dialect" by the Orkney Heritage Society. I discovered some poems on YouTube that were written as part of the event and thought you might like to hear them. They are read in the traditional Orkney dialect - well one of the dialects. Each island has it's own nuances and familiar words.
