Highland English

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Highland English (Scots: Hieland Inglis[citation needed]) is the variety of Scottish English spoken by many in the Scottish Highlands and the Hebrides.[citation needed] It is more strongly influenced by Gaelic than are other forms of Scottish English.[1][2]

Phonology

  • The svarabhakti ("helping vowel") that is used in some consonant combinations in Gaelic and Scots is sometimes used in the Hebrides, so that "film" may be pronounced "fillum".[3]
