Scottish Society

Founded in 1982 by the late Ruth Robertson MCIL, the Scottish Society meets four times a year – normally in February, May, September and November – with the AGM being held as part of the November meeting. To accommodate as many members as possible, the Society rotates its venues, meeting once each year in Dundee, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Perth.

At present the Society has some 50 members resident throughout Scotland. The annual membership subscription of £10.00 includes attendance at meetings, to which both CIOL members and non-members are warmly welcomed.

The Scottish Society publishes a newsletter, typically containing an account of the previous meeting's talk, details of coming events, a feature on some aspect of language and, wherever possible, small contributions from members.
