GUEST,eldergirl Singing in Different Accents/Dialects (172* d) RE: Singing in Different Accents/Dialects 14 Aug 13

Thanks Eliza. It was the custom of the time, I think, and she wasn't as enlightened as some! We'd not long moved from Up North,for work for Dad, and though he was from Yorkshire, Mum was not, and had learnt her English from cut-glass types.
Thinking of Glasgow/Edinburgh comparisons, I have completely delighted in reading the adventures of Alexander McCall Smith's Scotland Street residents, though obviously you don't get the full impact of the accents by merely reading them...
One day I'll get tae Bonnie Scotland!
