Accent Vlog

Hi everyone!  I saw this on a few blogs this past week or so and thought it would be fun to participate.  Basically, we are reading a list of words and answering questions to compare dialects/accents and vocabulary around the country (and also because it's fun getting a chance to hear what our favorite bloggers actually sound like).  If you want to participate, the word list and questions follow the video.  Also, I would encourage you to go check out Mel, Melissa, Brooke and Tiffany on their accent vlogs!

Here we go:

Here are the words and questions for you to participate!

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

•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 get that flip out and get to work!
