Thread Name: How to pronounce 'plaidie'
Subject: RE: How to pronounce 'plaidie'
Again, it seems, I'm with JennieG.

In Oz I've only heard the word "plaidie" rarely but it was always "PLAY dee" whereas I've heard the word "plaid" routinely, always pronounced "PLAD". Because daughter #2 has taken up Scottish Highland dancing I get to hear the words plaid and tartan quite often, frequently by speakers with a lot more recent Scottish (and Scots) in their lives than mine.

Cheers, Rowan
