I know what it is, I know what your arguments are for calling it a separate language. The main argument is that it's a dialect of Middle English that historically evolved separately from Standard English. Despite this claim of linguistic isolation, Scots shares most of the convergences that happened between Middle and Modern English, and it's also arguable that Scots was never fully isolated from Standard English to begin with. After all, you guys share an island.

You're just a dialect of English that says "wee bairns" and pronounces the gh in daughter, as far as I'm concerned. I once listened to a professor give a 30 minute lecture in Scots and I thought it was a total joke that he was acting like he was speaking a different language.
