Accent Vlog

It seems to be almost required material here lately do record your own version of the accent vlog. I have to admit that I don’t usually like videos on blogs too much, but I have thoroughly enjoyed hearing what everyone sounds like! There are a lot of folks that sound different than I imagined. I’m not sure why I have preconceived notions about how they should sound, but I do. Here is mine. Sorry for the crazy background. I recorded this today on my lunch break at work!

The instructions are to say these words:
Aunt, Route, Wash, Oil, Theater, Iron, Salmon, Caramel, Fire, Water, Sure, Data, Ruin, Crayon, Toilet, New Orleans, Pecan, Both, Again, Probably, Spitting image, Alabama, Lawyer, Coupon, Mayonnaise, Syrup, Pajamas, Caught

And answer these questions:

  • What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?
  • What is the bug that when you touch it, it curls into a ball?
  • What is the bubbly carbonated drink called?
  • What do you call gym shoes?
  • What do you say to address a group of people?
  • What do you call the kind of spider that has an oval-shaped body and extremely long legs?
  • What do you call your grandparents?
  • What do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket?
  • What do you call it when rain falls while the sun is shining?
  • What is the thing you change the TV channel with?
