Isn't it about time people such as R G Cuan (Write Back, September 3) and Nelson McCausland stopped prattling on about Gaelic and Ulster Scots? They should admit that, for all intents and purposes, both languages are a thing of the past.

No one writes to newspapers with complaints about another's language in anything other than English, because they would not be understood or simply ignored.

It is about time they understood that, other than as a social thing, both Gaelic and Ulster Scots are dead languages and, as such, will never have a place in general conversation.

Ulster English Speaker, Whitehead
