How the Scotch pronounce English 14 April 2014
By Prof Mendez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A humorous commentary on the British upper class, including how they speak English. An earlier edition I read some years ago noted that the only dialect accepted as "U" was the "Scotch" (dialect). Unfortunately, this seems to have been dropped in this edition. NB It is a fact that the word "Scotch" rather than "Scottish" is "U" in England. Bertrand Russell relates how his Publishers' editors routinely changed "Scotch" to "Scottish" in his manuscripts, which he promptly changed back and returned. Although Canadian-American, John Kenneth Galbraith was always self-conscious of the status of his prose and wrote a book with the title "The Scotch".
