Last week, there was a vlogging meme going around all about accents and dialect, and though I’m not half as camera-friendly as the lovely Aly and Amy, since it’s been months and months since I did one, I thought it’d be fun to join in! 🙂 Basically, you go through the list of given words and then answer the questions, and see if you pronounce and answer them the same way your readers would.
Say these words:
Aunt, Route, Wash, Oil, Theatre, 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
Now 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 change the TV channel with?
And here’s my “11 Year Expat” response! Excuse my atrocious hair and ridiculous squinting… it felt like a bloody eye test, lol, but I suppose that’ll teach me not to get new contacts 🙂 Hope everyone had a lovely weekend!
