Proper pronounciation: Edinburgh, Glasgow, Glouchester, Glouchestershire; Who, exactly, is British?

Jump to last reply

Hi U.K. experts (again). Just so I do not sound like a COMPLETE rube when I am in the U.K., how do you pronounce the following names?

Edinburgh (Ed-in-burg, Ed-in-burr, Ed-in-bur-ah, Ed-in-bur-oh)?; Glasgow (Glass-go, Glazz-go)?; Glouchester/Glouchestershire (Gl-ow-stir, Gl-ow-stir-sure)?

Also, when someone says they are British, where are they implying they are from? England, the U.K., the British Isles? Do the Scots call themselves British?

I hope these are not offensive questions.

Thanks!!!
