The Particularities of Scottish English
P I ANO. Dialects and accents are changing and will continue to change. After all, language never stands still. Some traditional dialects are disappearing, but new urban and multicultural varieties continue to arise.
This can be influenced by music. In addition, people change the language they use depending on who they are talking to, and why they are talking, for example formally in a job interview or casually to friends and family at home. People also change the way they speak to make themselves understood more easily, a phenomenon called linguistic accommodation.
Ethnicity, class, gender, sexuality and age can all affect language usage. And there are also personal reasons for using dialects and accents to identify yourself. I have lived in England for 16 years, but you can still hear my Scottish accent and that is unlikely to change.
And as the modern world becomes increasingly connected, linguists have wondered whether dialects and accents in general are bound to disappear. But while there is much discussion about the disappearance of dialects and accents, public interest in the subject is growing.
A consensus has not yet been reached.
