Response to This Is What Happens When You Ask People To Draw A Map Of The UK And Ireland From Memory:
Recognising a map and reproducing a map are very different things!Also there are so many places and slight differences in names, things that locals have started to go back to or change forward to!
Thank you to the the Shetlander (can you say this?) for a good explanation of how to best refer to the islands. We need more people who will just calmly explain the better ways of referring to their region rather than just get offended! Then people can learn and improve!
I’ve lived both in Elgin (Moray, Northern end of Scotland) and Brighton and there are so many subtle differences in places and their local pronunciation etc…
Also my drawing is rubbish, I’m not sure how good a job I’d do! Well done for trying!
