Accent Vlog Linky Party!!

Happy LONG weekend!! :) In order to celebrate, I thought I'd kick off a party for us all... I hope you'll join in!

I saw this on a friend's blog, and loved this idea, especially since we're all over the US. Simply watch my video (it's less than 5 minutes, and Puh-LEASE pardon the 9:45 pm curly hair mess!), then shoot your own, and link up! You'll be reading a list of words whose pronunciations vary across the nation, as well as a list of questions that have different answers depending on where you are! It's gonna be fun... and good for some giggles! What better way to kick back and relax away from school, right??

Well, here goes nothing:

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 use to change the TV channel?

Have FUN! Add your link below, and please invite your friends... teachers or not!



  1. haha, so fun!! I say everything almost exactly the same way as you! I saw this post on someone's blog a while back and she said she calls them "rainy days" hahahah! I laughed out loud. Seriously, who has a different name for that?! Thanks for being brave and showing us who you are!

    Miss Kindergarten

  2. I'll try to do this tomorrow. I'm from NJ and I have a few words you should add to the list - dog, coffee, know, about, forget, car

    And the questions -
    Where do you go shopping for food?
    Where do you go swimming in salt water?
    What do you say when you need someone to repeat themselves?

    Miss B, Busy Bee

  3. I read the words and questions to myself before listening to your version... I didn't realize how redneck I sound until I compared myself to you! lol.

    I'm originally from Oklahoma (I went to OSU, but I'll still be friends with you if you're a sooner. ;), so I cracked up when you mentioned coke, y'all, and the shoppin' buggy. I definitely say those words. Luckily, when I moved last year, I moved to Texas, so not much has had to change!

    This was fun! Maybe I'll work up the courage to make my own video. :)


Thanks for visiting! :)
