Abstract

This paper presents the results of acoustic phonetic analysis of two small scale studies of a regional ethnic accent, Glasgow Asian. Three accent features indicate patterning according to both ethnicity and local personal identity for these speakers. Fine-grained phonetic analysis of the data, particularly for the realization of /l/, support the extension of Harris' (2006) notion of 'Brasian' to the phonetic level, and so here, to 'Glaswasian', an accent which integrates features of Glaswegian and Asian heritage together.
