Frequently Asked Questions

How do you pronounce your name?

Like "Katrina". The o is an illusion. Here is a video of Caitriona Balfe from Outlander repeatedly demonstrating this!

Why do you sound English / Scottish / Irish / American / Canadian / weird?

I was born in Scotland to Scottish parents, but we moved to England when I was six years old. Because I was a strange child with few friends, I managed to hold on to some of my accent. Since then, I've lived about half my life in England and half in Scotland, with a few years in the USA thrown in just to confuse things further. At this point, my accent is irredeemably broken and I just have to live with it.

I'm confused - I was looking for a scientific paper about categories / language development / word meanings. Where did I go wrong?
