Last month, after several weeks of increasing suspense, Scotland made its historic decision to continue as a part of the U.K. Many people who followed the media coverage spoke of not understanding what Scottish speakers were saying.
Me, too, sometimes, as I’ve mentioned before.
This funny bit about Scottish accents came courtesy my husband.
Certainly many of us in the U.S. have had similar Baffling Accent Experiences when speaking to people from other parts of the U.S. Or even—as has happened to me—from my own hometown. For more on one U.S. version of a sometimes-bewildering accent, please see my previous Friday video here.
