Dialect Vlog

CaSaundra over at A Pinch of This, and a Dash of That shared her dialect vlog and I thought it was such a cute idea, I decided to chime in.

The Questions:

  1. What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?
  2. What is the bug that when you touch it, it curls into a ball?
  3. What is the bubbly carbonated drink called?
  4. What do you call gym shoes?
  5. What do you say to address a group of people?
  6. What do you call the kind of spider that has an oval-shaped body and extremely long legs?
  7. What do you call your grandparents?
  8. What do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket?
  9. What do you call it when rain falls while the sun is shining?
  10. What is the thing you change the TV channel with?

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

Do you say anything differently than I do? Let me know if you record one, I'd love to watch it!

Yaaaay! Thanks for the heads up that you did this--so much fun! It's so great to see a vlog of my fav bloggers too--it always feels like you get to "know" them a bit better!! My fam is all from the east coast so I can definitely pick up the NY in you! Have a fabulous weekend!!

haha Thanks CaSaundra! I had just washed it the night before and went to bed w/ it wet. That seems to produce the best results for us curly haired folk.

I loved hearing you! I think this is my first time commenting but I've been reading you for a while and its so neat to actually hear your voice! Your dialect is pretty much like mine. I'm totally ambivalent about the "aunt" thing too. I might do this vlog soon too!

Christina said...

Thanks everybody! hehe It was fun! Let me know if you do it, Eden! I'm curious to hear everybody elses - it's fun!

Ahhh! I think you're starting to get a little bit Midwestern sounding. Hahaha. Also, We say "crayon" and "syrup" exactly the same. Ashley always makes fun when I say crayon as "cran" and then he's a smart-ass and says something about cranberries.
