Scot English/Frisian

I can understand how that could happen. Scot English speakers and
Frisian, especially if both do speak standard English, but it can be
interesting when you get Americans as well, American had kept alot of
older forms than modern English (England), and I suspect Scot English
has maintained alot of like forms, as well as Norse forms. I found it
wierd to listen to a Dutch speaker, since the rythem of the language
sounds very familiar, but the words are different, but not always.. I
can read Dutch due to large English vocab, some knowledge of how Dutch
spells things as well as German.
