If you read the blog earlier this week, you might be playing in three leaf clovers with your new irish accent. Next up, the scottish accent! You might be thinking "but aren't these basically the same thing?" NO! To the untrained ear, they may sound similar, but the difference is important. So what better example to showcase a scottish accent than with Disney's new movie Brave which takes place in Scotland.
It's all in the pronunciation you say? Why yes, it totally is. For example, the scottish only emphasize and roll one "r" and words ending in "ing" are pronounced normally but the "g" is dropped. Also, The letter "i" is spoken like "ayt" as in "right" and "fight". All of these rules might be hard to learn by by reading text, so check out this video where Gareth Jameson, an actor and voice coach, teaches the basics of a Scottish accent:
Are you BRAVE enough to learn the Scottish accent?
