Seminar paper from the year 2003 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 2,0, University of Potsdam (Institut für Anglistik), 10 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Few years ago, in 1995, I had the chance to attend the world famous 'Cutty Sark Tall-Ship Races'. The regatta took us from Edinburgh in Scotland to Bremerhaven in Germany. We were sailing for nearly three days until we reached the finish in Bremerhaven. Although we had not so much good look with the wind conditions in the North Sea we, the crew and the trainees of the 'Great Duchess Elizabeth' from Elsfleth in Germany, reached the 2nd place which was really good and everyone of us was really proud because famous sailing-ships like for example the 'Alexander of Humboldt' known from 'Beck's' - advertisements on TV also attended this regatta. The fact that this was the first time I attended a sailing regatta and the really tall sailing-ship where I was on board, it was about 65 metres long, impressed me so much I will never forget this. And now, as I was searching for a topic and material for my paper in cultural studies I found out that Scotland is famous for his ship-building industry. There was no doubt about writing this paper about ship-building in Scotland for me because of my memories of that great regatta. What I want to do is to show the development of the ship-building industry in Scotland during the 20th century. I will direct my attention on the shipyards situated on the river Clyde, which is one of the most important rivers in Scotland. The river is situated in the west of Scotland and is very important for the industry of the town of Glasgow because it flows into the Atlantic Ocean and offers quite good conditions for yards. Therefore, it can be used for exports and imports by merchant ships. I will make clear if the ship-building industry situated there suffered under the economic decline as many other industries in Scotland did. I also would like to point out what reasons there have been that caused the decline of ship-building on the Clyde. Finally, I will give some industry solutions for solving the problems of the shipyards on the Clyde.

Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Linguistics, grade: 1,0, University of Potsdam (Institut für Anglistik/ Amerikanistik), course: Scots and the other languages of Scotland, language: English, abstract: When people think of Scotland the images they have in mind are usually very restricted. Most of us combine the country with the myth of Nessie, the Clans and their tartan culture, the good whisky, the Highlands and the famous Highland Games. All these existing images of Scotland make up a large part of the country's culture but Scotland is more than that. Only the minority of us might think of Scotland as a country with a long and problematic history and just some are regarding the fact that it has still not gained its entire independence. It is a country full of contrasts and difficulties which you cannot only become aware of when you consider the geographical situation but also the social, political and cultural circumstances. A today's problem resulting from Scotland's long history is the question of Scottish identity, and accompanied by that the language problem. Language is an element of culture and people express through their language and speaking behaviour identities and attitudes. In Scotland the situation is quite difficult. As part of the United Kingdom the official language spoken in Scotland is Standard English but depending on the area you are visiting, you can also find speakers of other varieties such as Scots or Gaelic or even dialects. However, these varieties are said to be non- standardised languages and therefore are not officially used in Scotland. That leads to the problem that speakers of these varieties have the feeling not to be part of the speaker community and consequently they cannot identify themselves with these. The issue that now has to be surveyed, is the question what types of languages are existing in Scotland and how do these language varieties influence the identities and attitudes of Scots. For that reason I have planned to concentrate on one of Scotland's languages and would like to write my paper about the Scots and their tongue. In the first part I will deal with the Scots, their nation and their development. The main focus in my work will be the re-flection on Modern Scots, the problematic of the Scots' status and its varieties. I am going to discuss if it is a distinct language, an accent or a dialect and will also look at the different varieties of Scots inside and outside of Scotland to give an overview of existing forms.
