Regional dialect

21 01 2011

I found this meme here on another blog and, being the language nerd I am, could not resist doing it myself.

Here’s my video – but you guys should do it too!  I’m really interested in hearing from you, so if you do it, leave a link!

Record yourself saying the following words out loud and answering the following questions:

HERE ARE THE 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.

HERE ARE THE QUESTIONS:

  • What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?
  • What is the bug that when you touch 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?

That won’t do! It loads on mine, but I am pretty sure videos I post here don’t show up on blog readers, if you read from there. Here’s the direct link so you can see it anyway! http://vimeo.com/19038290

Thanks for stopping by and for posting this originally – it’s really neat!
