OMG YouTube should put a goverment health warning on that one. People with frail dispositions might have heart failure. It won't half add one or two new words to the vocabularies of little old spinster ladies.

I left Ulster in 1964 and I never heard the term Ulster Scots be it to describe a person or a language and so after a bit of a search I reckon this could be the answer,

I have to say I agree , I was born and reared in North Antrim where people talked like that all the time , if you had suggested to them that they were speaking Ulster Scots , ie , speaking a language , you would have been told that there wis somethin wrang wi yer heid and that there was a want in ye .

It's a dialect , not a language , yes it's influenced by the close historical ties with the west coast of Scotland but it's a dialect nonetheless .

With the exception of the Maiden City which has its own unique accent/dialect , this "Ulster Scots " dialect can be heard from Donegal along the coasts of Londonderry and Antrim to the Ards Penninsula
