Fragment of a discussion from User talk:John Reid

I just said ok, I wasn't saying that I was right. My translations were simply based on what is used at the Scots Wikipedia, by not only me, but many other editors. Eidit, eedit, ondae, delyte, and many other words used in your translations are not used on the Scots Wikipedia, but I'm not saying you're wrong, after all I'm only sco-2. But many editors that have written articles in the Scots Wikipedia are native Scots speakers. I know I reverted my edits to "eidit", I wasn't thinking.

Is "fae" not used on Scots Wikipedia? I would have thought it would be given that it's the modern spelling of the archaic "frae".

It is used, just not near as much as "frae". In a search for "fae", it showed that 283 articles used the word, whereas "frae" is used in 8,926 articles.
