AKS Pronunciation of 'Schottische'? (66* d) RE: Pronunciation of 'Schottische'? 26 Oct 00

In Finnish the dance is called sottiisi (loaned from Swedish schottis) or sometimes saksanpolkka (=german polka).

Somehow evidence above seems to imply that it was through Germany that the dance first became popular outside Scotland and thus known by its German name (der) Schottische (Tanz), without the /k/ sound.
