A reader emailed me this and wondered if I could understand it.
(Warning: it uses the word which manages to cross most language/accent barriers).
I dinnae have a problem and could understand every worrrrd he said.
My father was a Scot and while my friends all told me he had a really strong accent I couldn’t hear it.
But when we went to Scotland I had no trouble understanding the locals and often had to translate for my farmer.
