About Me

My photo
I love Jesus. I love my family. I love photography. I love books. I love thinking. Probably in that order. I have a wonderful husband, five beautiful daughters, a house, and a camera. I enjoy spending time talking to my husband, playing with my girls, redecorating my house and shooting things with my camera. In my spare time, I sleep.

My Dialect Vlog

Well,  This is my first ever Vlog.  I was inspired by The Paper Mama to do a dialect Vlog so that other bloggers can hear how I speak.  I forgot to mention in the video that I am from Western Nebraska and have lived here all my life.  People not from around here tend to think we have a bit of a twangy accent but typically I don't hear an accent at all but I suppose we are used to ourselves, right?  (But then again, there are those around here who say "warsh' so maybe they're right.)


So if any of you want to do this here is the list of words and questions for your reference.
 
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?

Sounded right to me! Except we'd pronounce "syrup" more as "surup" instead of "sirup." But then, I did grow up in Missouri so I guess that's close enough to Nebraska.

Funny thing to me that I noticed through this experience is that I pronounce words differently when I read them than when I just say them in normal life. I normally say 'Surup' but when I read it...the 'y' requires I pronounce it the other way. Same with mayonnaise. I pronounce it 'Man-aise' but reading it...I want to read it the way it's spelled. Lawyer is another one. 'Loyer' to 'Law-yer'. I guess my reading is less 'hickish' than my regular speech. :)
