    Thank you! I felt so bad when after saying "kampai" with Japanese friends and when they asked my ancestry (heavy heavy Scot, like 80% to 23 and Me, even though we've lived in American South since the post Jacobite cleansing) and all I could say was cheers.

    Even my friends were like "You're not English lol"

    What is the American cheers? We said "clank" in college though that was poking fun. Or we said our school slogan (War Eagle in my university town).

    …and I thought properly pronouncing my late wife's Yupik Eskimo dialect was tough.  It dinnae improve much attempting to learn my now wife's bayou accent.  Lordy, lordy, I would have been phonetically lost had I married highland lassies.
