Phonetic Link




Scottish English is a variety of British English, but their pronunciation is so different from Standard English that, in comparison, BrE and AmE sound almost the same. Nevertheless, as everywhere else in Britan, you can find people anywhere in the range going from pure Scottish dialect to pure Standard English. A strong Scottish accent is more frequent in rural areas.
