For each characteristic, I first describe how a Standard American speaker would pronounce the sound, and then teach you how to phonetically turn that into a Scottish sound.

For other Scottish dialect characteristics, or to see what other coachings and resources are available, you can find me at www.speakthespeech.net

About the instructors

Kelli Ruttle has worked as a teacher of Dialects and Accent Reduction in New York City and across the country. With lessons that expand on the Classic Skinner Method and utilize the International Phonetic Alphabet, Kelli exercises each sound individually in an effort to train both the mouth and the ear to work together. Her lessons are designed to get the facial muscles working instinctively to create the sound, and the ear tuning in to when an error does or does not occur. She received her M.F.A. from Case Western Reserve University, her B.A. from San Diego State, and has been based out of New York City for the past several years.
