  • Here are some tips for a general Scottish accent.

  • Well, the first thing we look at is the oral posture.

  • So what's the oral posture of a general Scottish accent?

  • You want to bring your tongue tip all the way back, but you've got a lot of action still in your lips and in your jaw.

  • So unlike a Russian accent where you pull your tongue all the way back and you don't move your lips a lot,

  • you pull your tongue back all the way, and you get, sort of a Scottish feel to the accent.

  • Let's take a look at some Scottish sound changes.

  • In Scottish, the Rs are very often tapped.

  • So "The room was very bright" becomes "The room was very bright."

  • The room was very bright.

  • Give that a shot.

  • The A diphthong two element vowel sound in English "A",

  • becomes pure, becomes a single vowel sound in a Scottish accent.

  • So "play", "take", "a" becomes "play", "take", "a".

  • It's fun to play with a liquid "U" sound in your Scottish accent.

  • So "duty", "news", "duke". You can go really far with it and you'll sound like Mike Meyers.

  • "Duty", "news", "duke".

  • Or you can knock it back, "duty", "news", "duke".

  • Let's take a look at that "ah" "aww" transition in the Scottish accent.

  • So, in American English I'd say "got", "shot", "knob",

  • but in your Scottish accent, you'd say "got", "shot", "knob".

  • And you hear that glottal at the ends of the sounds, so instead of "got", you get "got".

  • That's a sound that's very characteristic of a general Scottish accent.

  • That glottal sound at the end.

  • So the "oo" sound in American English, "I can't put this good book down."

  • "OO, oo, oo, oo" becomes "I can't put this good book down."

  • And you can find that sound -

  • - It's a fun sound to make.

  • And you can find that sound by making an E, and then wrapping the lips and kind of sucking the sound back into the middle of your mouth a little bit.

  • So you get "E OO"

  • "I can't put this good book down."

  • "I can't put this good book down."

  • Give that a shot.

  • So what's the musicality of a Scottish accent?

  • The room was very bright.

  • You get a lot of glottals.

  • It's a strong accent.

  • Emphasis is usually with volume and less with pitch variety.

  • But don't take my word for it.

  • Listen to some native speakers and train your ear to recognize what you hear in the musicality,

  • and what can you learn about Scottish people by the way that they speak.

Here are some tips for a general Scottish accent.
