Miss Milligan's Miscellany 

 

Teachers' Association (Canada) and The Royal Scottish Country Dance Society undertook a joint project in 2014.  The purpose of the project was to clarify some of the ambiguities and inconsistencies that are found in Miss Milligan's Miscellany.

 

We are indebted to Pat Coyle, Ruth Jappy, Jean Martin and Mervyn Short for the time and diligence they brought to this project. We trust you will find the Notes useful.

 

Notes on Miss Milligan's Miscellany

 

Scottish Country Dancing is done all over the world.  Frequently, these dances are being done by non-Scottish and even non-English speakers.  This leaves doubt in how a dance name is pronounced.  With the help of the phonetic pronunciation included in the Notes above and an audio file of the dance name being spoken, we hope to allieviate some of this doubt.  Please keep in mind that there are many dialects in Scotland and the audio files below represent only one of these dialects.

 

Please click on the dance name to hear how the dance is pronounced.
