Uhhh...what?

Anyway, everyone knows that "orange" rhymes with "door hinge". Sort of.

Tommy ate at every meal
Strained carrots from a porringer,
And as more carrots he did eat,
The more his skin grew oranger.

Since we're in the poststructural pub Glenmorangie rhymes with orangey if that's any use to you.

No it doesn't! Not unless you've got a really weird pronunciation of "orangey" ...

Cue Glasgow King's Theatre pantomime audience: "Oh yes,it does! I'm a mild-mannered chap by nature, but this one was a staple of Glasgow pub arguments for decades. So I'll pick up the gauntlet.

Here's Murdock's Pub on the subject, phonetic alphabet and all to assist our EEC cousins:

Here's Brian Cox on the subject:

Remember he was Argyll in Braveheart and Hannibal Lecter in the original Manhunter. He'd eat your liver with FAva beans not faVA beans if you corrected his pronunciation.

Here's the final proof:

Correct their pronunciation and you'd get the bum's rush from the bar with or without your head attached.

Anyway, it's all good fun. No offence meant and none taken. Let's have a round of GlenMOrangies. The Milky Bars are On me! Stop the bus barman, mine tastes orangey!

True. Strangely, that possibility hadn't occurred to me!

Don't ask for Glenmorangie in my patch, then, because we would correct your pronunciation and you'd blow a gasket. And we automatically pronounce "Elgin" as "Eljin", just to warn you in advance. Glasgow often rhymes with "cow", and Edinburgh? You can probably guess already.

Sigh. The Scots make everything so difficult. :wink:

Hope you've got 'Errogie' right or you'll be on the Road to Nowhere! :o

(I've heard it wrong more often than right on the Internet...)

No worries there; I already heard "Errogie" from a native, but even if I hadn't, that one would be intuitive for me. Milngavie being pronounced "Mill-guy", however, is totally not.

If anyone should have problems with "Errogie", then the Gaelic spelling of Earaghaidh ought to clear everything up. :wink:
