How To Have A Scottish Accent
Hello, I'm Gareth Jameson. I'm an actor anda voice coach from londonvoicelessons. com. here are some tips for working on yourvoice. Now the key to any accent is to isolate the sounds that are specific to that accent. So, when I'm talking about a Scottish accent,I'm going to talk about a very generalized Scottish version of the English language,sometimes called Scottish English. There are of course many different accents dependingon whether you're in Glasgow, Edinborough, or Aberdeen. This one is probably what wecall a general Scottish accent. Now, the first thing you need to work on isyour quot;Rquot; sound. So, for most Scots speakers,
they don't actually use quot;rrrrquot; that we associate.It'd be very rare to hear quot;murderquot; with big long R's. It's much more common to roll the R just oneroll, called a tapped R. Bright red, so I say bright red like that. Or saying wordslike butter or bird. Notice that it's tapped, so it's not quot;birrrdquot;or not bird, bird. Also, if you get an L after the letter R, sometimes you'll have an extrasyllable on the word so that girl becomes quot;girl, girlquot; and world becomes quot;worldquot;. Theloveliest quot;girlquot; in the quot;worldquot;. Our next feature is the vowels in bath andlaugh are the same as in the vowels in trap
and man. So, quite often they are differentfor other accents, but in this accent they are the same. Bath, laugh, trap, and man. There are little difference: Bath, laugh,trap, and man. Also, the quot;ooquot; and quot;uquot; vowels are the same. In the UK at the moment, thereis a T. V. commercial with the tag line: quot;Good withfoodquot;. The narrator on the commercial is Scottish, so we hear quot;Good with foodquot;. They rhyme in his accent, and that's the samefor the quot;ooquot; and quot;uquot; sounds. So, that hook and pool are quot;hookquot; and quot;poolquot;. There is nodifference between the pull of a rope and
the swimming pool. Pool. pool and pull are the same. Pull. Finally, listen to this phrase which willshow you a few more features. It's not a problem if you haven't gotten any. It's not a problemif you haven't gotten any. Now, this is more to do with dialect thanaccent and in fact, while you're researching your accent, it is important to look up anydialect words, any words that are different in that accent than they are for other people.For example, rather of saying not, in Scots speak I might say quot;Notquot;. It's not a problem.
And rather than haven't, quot;have anyquot;. quot;It'snot a problem if you have any gotten any.quot;.
