This paper reports on the project Scots Words and Place-names (SWAP), which is designed to explore the innovative potential of integrated online community engagement methods in the study of language and of placenames. Funded from March to November 2011 by JISC (Joint Information Systems Network), it is a collaboration between the University of Glasgow Enroller Project, Scottish Language Dictionaries and the Scottish Place-Name Society. The project aims to engage the public in an exploration of language use in present-day Scotland, focusing on the Scots vernacular.
