First Vlog at Country Roads!

So I got this idea over at Windy Poplars about doing a vlog on how we speak..or our 'dialect'.  Fun idea!!  The idea is to video yourself saying the words and answering questions (found below) and we can compare how differenly we all pronounce them!  Its fun (I think) to hear how people in different regions say certains words, phrases, etc.  I hope I don't scare you guys off by my 'hillbilly' talk..or make you laugh too hard!!  Enjoy and be sure to play along..I'd love to see more of these!  Oh and excuse me if I seem a tad nervous..this is my first ever vlog at Country Roads!!  :-D

Here's the list of words to say and questions to answer:
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 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?


  1. Too cool! :) If I can work up the nerve I will have Perri use her Flip camera to video me for one of these. No promises though...I'm kind of a chicken when it comes to things like this! ;)

    We say lots of these things alike, but a couple are different. It's amazing the difference just between southern WV and northern WV! I'm originally from Glasgow (in the Kanawha Valley) and when I moved up here I couldn't believe how 'northern' these people sound! LOL! Now I guess some of it has rubbed off on me, too.

  2. OH goodness, I love your accent! How fun! Totally with you on using the term "pop" - that's what we call it here too.

  3. This is so fun! I made one too : )
    It was neat to actually hear your voice!


I love hearing your comments! Thanks for stopping by!
