Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland, to the west of the country’s central lowland region. The Glaswegian accent – known as Glasgow Patter – is notoriously hard to understand. Used in everyday contexts, including broadcasting and print, the dialect is continuously evolving. Michael Munro’s famous guide to the dialect, The Patter was published in 1985.
The video clip is from ‘Parliamo Glasgow’, a popular comedy series by Stanley Baxter, which features plenty of the Glaswegian accent!
