Blogger Accents

Alright, I saw this on Catilin’s blog, Healthy Tipping Point, and I thought I’d throw my entry in for The Accent Vlog.

List of 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

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?

Now just a little bit of info… I was born in Illinois and lived there until I was 7.  Then I lived in Utah.  Now I live in Nevada.  Apparently regional things can make a difference in not only how you say things, but what you call things.  I’ve always known that I call the “carbonated bubbly drink” by a name more popular in the mid-west than here in the west as I’ve had people question me on that one before.

My voice is also a little gravelly/nasal today because I’m still recovering from bronchitis!

But I thought this was kind of fun… Play along!  Leave a note if you do!
