Did you just use 'translate' and 'Glaswegian' in the same sentence?  You know that's like the Philosopher's Stone of linguistics, right?  O_o

Yeah yeah.. damn intolerant girly namby pamby english. Siri canna even translate a proper Glaswegian accent

Now I'm trying to imagine a Scottis brogue crossed with a Southern drawl, and wondering how Siri would survive that.

I used Glaswegian.. because I couldn't figure out what a resident of Edinburgh is called.. aside from 'seldom sober'.

Well for about a... year or so after coming back from living in Ireland.. I had a nasty midlands Irish brogue/Carolina drawl going. Used to drive my teachers crazy.. I had REAL fun with my spelling teacher. (I was using an ENGLISH ENGLISH dictionary)
