Video post- Accent challenge!

Hey guys!

I decided to do the accent challenge which I have posted below. I think it's a really fun challenge and I hope that you enjoy it! Sorry that I say 'em' a lot in the vid! :)


Pronounce the following words: Aunt, Roof, Route, Wash, Oil, Theater, Iron, Salmon, Caramel, Fire, Water, Sure, Data, Ruin, Crayon, New Orleans, Pecan, Both, Again, Probably, Avenue, Alabama, Lawyer, Coupon, Mayonnaise, Pajamas, Caught, Naturally, Aluminium, GIF, Doorknob, Envelope, Drawing, Tomato, Often, Dog, February, Syrup, About, Process, Status, Organization, Orange, Talk, Mobile, Idea, Dynasty, Renaissance, Patronize, Breakfast, Drawer, Horror, Herbs.

What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?

What is a bubbly carbonated drink called?

What do you call gym shoes?

What do you call your grandparents?

What do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket?

What is the thing you change the TV channel with?

Choose a book and read a passage from it.

Do you think you have an accent?

Be a wizard or a vampire?

Do you know anyone on Tumblr in real life?

End audio post by saying any THREE words you want.

Hope you enjoyed and that others take part too!

Wow, that was a really good video, I love the idea of an accent challenge. :)

Mayber sometime when I get over my video shyness I'll try it.

*Sorry I haven't commented before! Something odd was up with my account*

Awesome, you pronounce aluminium, tomato AND herbs all like there meant to be! I always cringe when I hear Americans always missing out the h in herbs.

Great vid!

I like your accent lol ^_^ I don't know that I'll post a video - I probably have the standard accent of someone from the northeast U.S.A. whatever that is lol, but I'm def video-camera shy. Thanks though for this post, it's neat to hear your voice!

@Cherish I'm glad you enjoyed my video! I think you commented on one of my posts before, no worries! :)

@ Chris haha I've never really thought about it, I guess everyone pronounces things a little differently. Still no idea what GIF is though... ;) Glad you liked the video!!

@Snowhyte no problem, it was so strange recording myself though. And cringing like mad when I watched it on my computer for the first time!

@SaryWalrus, hehe after I saw your video I decided that it would be fun to do one myself! Glad you liked the make-up, went Xmas shopping afterwards so I had to look decent!

Thanks everyone! x
