Exclamation Dialect/Accent Recording

Hi everyone,
I am a theatre student at the University of Houston in Texas and I am currently working on a project that requires me to acquire recordings of people with native Scottish accents. The recording is just a quick 10 minute session and can be done over skype or telephone and will only be used for a class room project. Being in Texas Scottish people are few and far between so I could really use some help with this project. Please let me know if anyone is interested!!

There are very few of us who are actually Scots on this site as it's American-owned.

If all you need is to have recordings of the various regional accents, then this BBC site might be worth a listen.
BBC - Voices - Your Voice

Good luck with your research, it sounds interesting!

That will be helpful for the project in general, but I do need someone that I can personally talk with and interact with for the recording. So if by any chance there are people on here......that would be wonderful!

Hello Sarah

I am Scottish. I'm not sure how to describe my accent, but it's probably standard, east-coast.
