The February WATT SCÖNE Work Group will take place at The Mill House in Galashiels on Friday 23rd February from 11am-1pm. Louisa Stewart will be organising the meeting and can be reached on 07913 628 356 for any questions.
Why SCÖNE? Well, it’s a combination of the Scottish Borders and Northern England words, and the umlaut because it’s not a ‘SCONE’ it’s a SCÖNE! It’s the easiest way I know to make sure we get a good crisp Scottish ‘o’ sound rather than an English ‘o’ sound – try saying it out loud a few times…you’ll get what I mean 🙂 Say’s the Aussie who pronounces everything very flatly!
