Despite the substantial Asian community in the UK, there has been very little phonetic work on British Asian accents. The complementary results from two small-scale studies of Glasgow Asian accent confirm the identification of Glasgow Asian as an recognizable accent, identify accent features particular to Glasgow Asian and not found in Glaswegian more generally, and confirm their use - with specific social-indexical functions - in everyday speech.
