Inspired by Tanit-Isis I have added my bit to the dialect and accent vlog that has been going around a bit over the last few months? (or longer??)
While of course this has nothing to do with my usual sewing or fashion-y stuff I really enjoyed viewing other people's vlogs, devoting some time to tracking back links and viewing a whole lot of them last night. It's addictive! So I decided to do my own. It's nice to have a real voice, not to mention a real accent in your mind which can add a whole new dimension when reading static written words!
The list of words is:
Aunt, Route, Wash, Oil, Theatre, Iron, Salmon, Caramel, Fire, Water, Sure, Data, Ruin, Crayon, Toilet, New Orleans, Pecan, Both, Again, Spitting Image, Alabama, Lawyer, Coupon, Mayonnaise, Syrup, Pyjamas, Caught
And (face-slap) the word "Probably" is supposed to be in there also, but in my stage-fright and nervousness I forgot to read that one! Woops!
Plus I added a few bonus words for fun:
About, Aluminium, Apricot, Schedule, News
And the questions are:
What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?
What is the bug that when you touch 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 hope you enjoy this, in spite of the fact that apparently I look a bit self-conscious according to the family... nerves! Also I'd like to point out that I said "...a series of questions", not as it sounded ".... serious questions", which would be a bit silly, no?
I hope to see some more of these out in blogland, please send me your link if you choose to do one of these yourself. It would be fun to compare all our various manners of speaking, and I would love to see some other accents joining in here!
Some others I've seen:
