I know most people don’t actually watch videos posted (or maybe it’s just me), but I hope you’ll stay. I’ve missed you all and have been feeling like I need to say hi and check in to see what you all are up to.
So anyway, I find accents fascinating. Maybe it’s because I’m a Speech-Language Pathologist by trade or maybe it’s because I’ve lived in the Midwest and in the South and have kind of a mishmash dialect.
In the video, I’ll be saying the words listed below.
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?
I’d love if you’d play along, if you do, let me know in the comments section!
P.S. In the video, I realized that I failed to mention that I also lived in Oklahoma and Kansas. It would be unfair if those fine states missed their chance at instant stardom here on Playgroups are No Place for Children.
