  1. Zaccone

    Thats great. Seems pretty accurate too, based on the few people in my office who’ve done it just now.

  2. Spaghetti Hoop

    Thinking of taking it a second time but pretending I say ‘scone’ as in gone and see if I get booted out of Dublin and into Surrey. Stress-testing I think they call it.

    My results suggested a mixture of the home counties and the Scottish lowlands, which is perhaps more accurate phonologically than geographically.

  4. theo kretschmar schuldorff

    It found me too.
    I was amazed to discover Kretschmar-Schuldorff country is a little salient of pronunciation

    1. realPolithicks


      When you pronounce this word does the “bough” sound like:
      (I) cough
      (II) cock
      (III) All of the above
