It’s been a wee while since our last newsletter, but we’re back!
Whilst things have been somewhat quiet on the content front of late, we do have a couple of new tidbits to share:
- R Sounds – a dive into Scottish R sounds and whether Scottish people really “roll” their Rs
- Living in Scotland: Annika’s Experience – a new post in our Living in Scotland series
Annika shared some great stories from her 15 or so years in Scotland. Possibly our favourite was:
I remember a slightly confusing conversation with a Glaswegian guy who reckoned if I went out partying with the islanders, I would need a “new lover”! What he really said was “liver”.
If you or anyone you know would like to write a similar post (we provide the questions!), just let us know.
We’re really grateful to have received some beautiful new recordings for the site. Unfortunately we’ve not got round to uploading them yet, but we’re aiming to do so in the coming weeks. Thank you again to those who have sent audio in!
