Another diaspora Scots phenomenon: The inability of North Americans to understand the accent. I’ve got friends who’ve had lengthy conversations with my parents only to reveal afterwards that they only understood about 50% of it. (This despite the fact that my parents have been here for nearly 40 years, and no longer sound anything like my Glesga relatives.)
