We have tentatively assigned the origin of this author to Scotland following Sundby et al.'s (1991:15) classification of this item as a Scottish source. Since we have been unable to find further supportive evidence, this should be referred to as [Scotland]. [NYB: comments made by the author in the preface to his dictionary also suggest that he was from Scotland.]
Koerner (2008) and ECCO give William Scott (1750-1804).
