Occasionally, We Get Internal Pronunciation Emails

Hi there

As we approach the Scottish referendum, may I please remind you that the correct pronunciation of Edinburgh is <ED-in-BURR-ah>

+++ if you are Scottish you can say ED-in-BRAH  +++

However it is NOT a an animal’s den “–burrow” or a  large lump of ice    “-berg”

Cheers

UNITED KINGDOM, Edinburgh : Pro-independence campaigners Sandy (L) and Ed Hastings pose wearing traditional Highland dress in Edinburgh, Scotland, on September 16, 2014, ahead of the referendum on Scotland’s independence. The leaders of the three main British parties on Tuesday issued a joint pledge to give the Scottish parliament more powers if voters reject independence, in a final drive to stop the United Kingdom splitting.
