Survey - How do you pronounce SCONE?

We home educate our 8 yr old daughter and she has set up this survey to try and find out whether where you grow up influences your chosen pronounciation of the word 'scone'.  We'd be very grateful if you'd take part and share the link so that we get a large sample size for most accuarate results!

Hi Faye and Sally,

I was born in Liverpool in 1963, only lived there untill I was 11 years old, then moved to Runcorn in Cheshire. I lived in Cheshire for 20 years then moved to Lancashire. 

I pronounce the word 'scone' with an O for orange, not a O for bone.

Hope that helps, good luck with your study.
