Whits ‘at aw aboot?

Hats aff tae ye if ye can unnerstaun this!

Ah’ve goat the freedom to write whit ah want tae, as long as ah use ma locul dialect.

Weel, haur is th ‘hing. Ah’m no sure ah really huv one. Fair enough, ah don’t pronounce the T in beautaffal the way ah should, but itherwise ah dot ma I’s an’ cross ma T’s. Hing on! Ah do pronounce the T! Its th’ bit efter that ah don’t really dae richt. Instead of saying, beauT-Tee-ful, ah hink ah say beut-A-ffal. Mental!

Imagine that ah soon’it mair Scottish than ah’m actually ur. I wid soon’ a bit like ‘this. An’ it’s weird, cause naebody pure talks li’ this AW the time. That wid be toatelly stupit. Onyway’s ah’m a bit crabbit the day, so ah’m gonnae shoot aff fur noo and let ye get oan wi yer day.

I hope ye have a braw yin.

  3. Ah now, this reminds me of a Scottish Head Porter I once knew. He bought me a Scottish/English dictionary one Christmas. I still have it somewhere. Enjoyed and smiled 🙂

    I think I got most of it -reading, but if you were saying it and talking fast no way. Do Scotts listening to Americans think we have an accent?

      Defnitely! I think the American accent is quite soft and welcoming. I can recognise different accents within America, but I’m not able to really identify them.

      Scottish accents and slang terms are a bit cringe worthy and sound ‘rough’. I try my hardest to eliminate any twangs at interviews and such like, but I always end up slipping back to saying ‘ah’ instead of ‘I’.

      What is realllllly funny… is listening to some Scottish people trying to do an American accent! 98% major fail! 🙂
