 Idiosyncratic Speech
Topic Originator: desparado

I have noticed this before but for some reason it is really apparent to me these days.

Listening to Scottish footballers being interviewed they almost to a man start to answer the question by saying No, or No aye, or aye no……contradictory and weird …aye or no ?

Partly to do with how people ask questions:

"So you're not cleaning the garage?"

The correct answer if NOT doing it would be to answer "Yes" but that could be interpreted as "Yes, I'm cleaning the garage".

Also think "aye" or "yes" are used to acknowledge you agree with the sentiment of the question. So if you've just lost a game someone might ask "Did you think the performance today was acceptable?" And the answer is "Yes [to you inferring it wasn't], no [to answer the question], we let ourselves down with sloppy passes."

Interesting that players were trained in speaking with the press years ago. I wonder if that still happens. Mibbies aye mibbies naw.
