    Scone as in bone has my vote.

    Cream then jam, or jam the cream?

    Cream then jam. Don't be a heathen. Why is the other picture so big? It's very upsetting.

    P.S if it's piped it's definitely not clotted cream. That's even more offensive than the order of toppings.

    I am absconding (but Northerners are always correct).

    Oh..., that's confusing & could lead to laughter.

    Unless I prefix laughter with an "s"... that could lead to slaughter.

    Stupid English.

    Does this mean the Stone of Scone(bone) is really the Stone of Scone(gone)?

    Its scone as in ‘gone’ not scone as in ‘bone’


    It really doesn't matter

    If you did say

    scone as in ‘bone’


    however I would think you were a right posh twerp

    Always been s-gone to me, and I'm a Southener!

    I get the Gone for Scone,but a little confused how Bone even sounds a little like Scone :-/

    so if its scone as in gone, should cone be con?

    or cone,phone,moan,roam......

    I think I actually use both interchangeably. Honestly it's really a matter of no great importance....

    not like pronouncing Bath as 'barth'. X)

    Scone (Gone) is the posh way, I've heard posh people say that

    And the cheesy versions are the best. Warm with loads of melting butter.

    Scone - Bone for me

    limpduck

    so if its scone as in gone, should cone be con?


    ^^ this.

    Scone rhymes with bone, phone and drone.

    Let's take the final "e" off all those words. Scon, bon, phon, dron. Sound changes, but each of the four words still rhyme.

    the north is correct


    Northern accents are what they are - accents. They are not standard English.

    you are one sick puppy, its scone as in gone
    jam/cream depends on their relative viscosity - thickest on bottom

    its all down to the north / south accent
    what about
    grass as in ar5e
    or
    grass as in ass??

    That particular Stone is neither bone not gone. It's /ˈskuːn/; Scottish Gaelic: An Lia Fàil, Scots: Stane o Scuin.

    'Skoon' for those that weren't taught their history correctly.

    I come from dannn sarf but went up norf once so I'm happy to use either scone (gone) or scone (bone). Whichever pronunciation gets me the goodies (_;)

    Not as simple as that, the map about half way down the page in the link below shows South Yorkshire and Manchester go for stone-bone, further north it's stone-gone

    The long 'a' variant ("bah-th"), unfortunately, is correct.
    Just like when Northerners change the long 'a' in Master ("Mar-ster") to a short 'a' ("Mass-ter").

    Other examples (from many more):
    Ask, Blast, Cast, Graph, Grass, Plaster, Raft, Vast, & **** (<- an illegitimate child).

    I used to live in Scone in Perthshire, pron. as in 'goon'

    Also is 'Scone' as in 'Gone', and its Jam first then cream, otherwise how would the jam adhere? it would slide off the cream

    Going back 2-300 years ago the short A sound was the standard pronunciation across the board. The long A originated in the late 18th century as a purely London pronunciation and slowly spread from there across Southern England.

    As the short A pronunciation has been around longer and has always been used by the majority of native English speakers I'd say that's correct and it's southerners who are doing it wrong.

    It's cream on first - and that's official! Devon's cream on scone before the jam style has been scientifically proven to be better than the Cornish jam first, cream on top version...

    Which county's method is correct?

    57% Cornwall - jam first and clotted cream on top
    43% Devon - cream first with jam on top

    Do you put jam then butter on your toast?

    Scone as in bone
    Grass as in ar$e
    Bath as in Barth

    Good morning


    Very sorry about that
    you would still get a bit of a funny look if you offered me a scone rather than a scone
    still say thank you very much mind X)
