Accent Vlog

Yesterday, I saw that Caitlin had posted a very cool vlog that is fondly being called the Accent Vlog. The basic premise is that bloggers read out a set of words and answer a set of questions so you can see what kind of accent we have. Obviously this was too much fun to pass up!

Please excuse my appearance, I have obviously just come from an appointment with my stylist/makeup artist. Oh, and I am so not awkward because I also had an appointment with my etiquette coach today.

If you wanted to follow along, here is the list of words/questions for The Accent Vlog: 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

  1. Ha Ha. I should do this. I am from the midwest and I pronounce everything correctly. For the record, it is soda and not pop. Every once in awhile people ask if I am from the midwest because I have an accent, but I don’t hear it.

  2. Haha this is so cool! It’s so interesting to hear how bloggers’ physical voices sound! I would never do this though – my voice is embarrassingly monotone with a nerdy/country twang. Yes, it’s possible LOL.

    And that question about addressing a group of people? I think it was to see if you said “Ya’ll” or “You all” 😀
