Language of the Devil


‘William Lorimer’s translation of the New Testament is a recent, belated triumph for Scots. Finally published in 1983, it was an immediate bestseller and has been popular with Scots churchgoers ever since. […] In the Lorimer New Testament only the devil speaks Standard English.’

– McCrum. R., MacNeil. R., Cran. W. 1986. The Story of English London, Great Britain: BBC Books (2002) p. 150
