Thread Name: Pronunciation of 'Schottische'?
Subject: RE: Pronunciation of 'Schottische'?
In Iowa, mid-50s: SHOT-ish. (And it was ALWAYS the same tune, the one I've seen in books called "Rustic Dance.")

From Norman Kennedy, Scots singer and weaver: sho-TEESH. Note that he has the "shot" beginning, not the "scot" syllable that Murray had, but did have the accent on the last syllable.

Hope this helps.

... But I doubt it.
