About this recording





James Miller reflects on the "Caithness cringe” and suggests that natives of the county often have a misplaced sense of being self-conscious about speaking in their natural dialect.

This is a brief extract from a Wick Voices interview recorded in November 2017 in which James discusses the development of Caithness dialect and what the future may hold for it.

Originally from Keiss and now living near Inverness, James is the author of around 20 books including the dialect guide A Caithness Wordbook.
