Hey Y’all…My Accent Post

So I was inspired by Jen Shaw @ www.jenbshaw.com to do an accent post. I’m probably not the best example of an Alabama accent, but it’s always cool to see regional differences. 🙂 Also, I’m proof that not all Alabamians speak like we are portrayed in the movies ;).

Anywho, this is my first vlog post, so please don’t hate on me. I don’t typically put myself in front of a camera, so I never realized that I make the weirdest facial expressions when I speak. lol

Ok, so the deal is you say the list of words below then answer the list of questions:

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 then 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?
So here you go, please excuse the bedroom, I was trying to get away from Adam and Scarlett since they were being so loud. They still managed to make themselves heard.

Check out Jen’s post here and post your own video to share with her!

  1. Aww! You have the BEST accent, I seriously love true southern accents (not the super cartoon-y ones you see on TV a lot). Also, your phrase for "sun shower" is so awesome. I never knew there were actual terms for it. I've been stuck in a google vortex looking them all up. Thanks for sharing!
