Post your accent!
« on: March 22, 2011, 07:47:56 AM »
Hey! So, here's what you do! You go to Vocaroo and hit record. Then you read off the list of words below and answer the questions.

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

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?



I've started! Here's my recording :)

Gah ha ha, you have the cutest accent, Cat! :D And you have some interesting local color, too--a buggy? :rofl:

I don't have time to record mine now, since I'm on lunch right now, but I will sometime in the near future. :yes:

AWESOME thread!

lol! I know! I think I used to say the basket, but once I saw this on my sis-in-law's video blog, I think I've slipped into saying "buggy" XD

Very cool! Thanks for joining in! I don't hear much difference between our accents :P

By the way...what did you say you call it when it's raining and the sun is shining? I couldn't make it out :(

So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

Here's mine! The sound quality isn't that great, and pardon me clearing my throat a few times--just got over a cough.

This is too funny! ;D I noticed a lot of people say "pa-JOM-as" when they say "pajamas," and I noticed Enchantermon says "gro-sir-ees" when he says "groceries." My friend from Texas/Florida was just here, and she says it that way too.  It's interesting--we're in the same country, yet we sound so different.  Strange! :)

Cool, you remind me of a KQ narrator. You should record some lines.

Also, you're from North Carolina but you don't seem to have any accent relative to me, a native of Connecticut. Are you atypical? Because when I road-tripped through NC, everyone seemed to have a distinct NC-type accent.
