How to Speak Irish Accent

Speak with a Scottish accent

Put your mouth in the right position.Mouth position is the way you position your jaw, lips, tongue, teeth, and vocal cords to speak in a specific way. There are a few basic techniques you can use to position your articulators (lips, teeth, tongue, hard palate and soft palate, etc.) in the correct position for a Scottish accent.
  • Position the tip of your tongue far back in your mouth. Pull your tongue back toward your throat as you speak. This will create harder, throatier sounds that sound like a Scottish accent.
  • You should still move your lips and jaw a lot while speaking. Tip your lips a little and open your mouth as if you wanted to frame every single sound and word with your lips. Because you have withdrawn your tongue, you may be tempted to close or tense your lips. To counteract this, focus on keeping your jaw loose and relaxed.
