The headwords being things like "Sasunnach" and "uisge", that's
Gaelic, not Scots.  See

(Oh... now I notice that I garbled the ISO 639 table last time;
inevitable, I suppose.  Well, here's a definitive edition:
"http://www.loc.gov/standards/iso639-2/englangn_ascii.html";.  The
appropriate three-letter code is -gla-.)

It seems unlikely anybody would bother packaging a wordlist (even
one this size) for "-sco-", since for a start it doesn't have a
generally-agreed spelling system.  And the fewer things labelled
"SCO" I have on my system the better.
