"scone" as in stone
"scone" as in gone

I blame my partner fully. He is Aussie. Say no more.
Is a mummy!
Tel is right - it's scone as in gone. I was also going to mention Scottish village of Scone (as in Skoon) but I see I've been beaten to it. Has anyone had any problems asking for batteries in a shop? The shop assistant couldn't understand my scottish version of batteries (not that I'm that broad). She thought I was asking for 'butteries' (Aberdonian rolls!). When she pronounced it it sounded to me like 'betteries'! I love the differences in words we use and pronunciation - very curious.

Don't ask me, as I speak funny...my kids are dead posh, though.......x
For example :
pasty sounds like nasty
pasta sounds like fast -a
yoghurt like yo-gurt
dance as in ro-mance
but I agree that 'marone' is just mad lol!
I work with kids, so initially I made an effort to use words they would understand; if I'd asked a kid if they wanted a passtee, they would probably be a bit confused!
