With that out of the way, the basic idea is to record a video of yourself, saying the following words and answering the following questions, so that people can see what kind of accent you have. Since I'm the one to start this thread, I'm going to go first and post my submission from AF here.

Enjoy. Smile


• Your name and username.
• Where you're from.
• Pronounce the following words: Aunt, Roof, Route, Theater, Iron, Salmon, Caramel, Fire, Water, New Orleans, Pecan, Both, Again, Probably, Alabama, Lawyer, Coupon, Mayonnaise, Pajamas, Caught, Naturally, Aluminum, GIF, Tumblr, Crackerjack, Doorknob, Envelope, GPOY.
• 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.



I've got some questions;
Vosur, when did you become an American? Cause you spelled 'aluminium' the Yank way, or to the Germans follow the Yanks on this one?

Additionally, when you say 'passage', do you mean an entire chapter of a book or just a paragraph?

I need to know these things so I can remind you people of my accent.

Well, most people I talk to online are from the US and that's where I get my vocabulary from.

No, it's spelled "Aluminium" in German as well.

Just a paragraph.

Here is mine. By the way, when I say caramel the second time, I meant to pronounce it care - a - mel (I suck at IPA).

Oh, good; at some point I'll get it done and up; not for a week at least though.
