Thanks for this.. I was surprised to here you say scones rhymes with cones. WHen I was living in NZ everyone say it like scon's and to me that sounds normal. Now that I'm in Canada everyone says it the Scottish way... I'm now thinking that everyone in NZ is saying it wrong.. lol... Do the Scot's say it differently then the English?
