Hey look who’s late to the party! Me again! I’ve been wanting to linkup for this accent vlog challenge for days but never got to it till tonight. I was nervous to record myself, but decided to just go for it. I love watching all the other vlogs from you guys, so what the heck.
Disclaimer: Since I am technology challenged, I recorded this by literally holding up my phone next to my computer with the questions pulled up, so the angles and lighting are absolutely awful and I apologize. I also make some weird faces and hate how I look and what I did in some parts, but in my effort to stop caring and just let me be me, here it is. Without a lick of editing … but that may also be due to not knowing how to edit it. Also all recorded in one swift take!
Special bonus: at the end I rant a little bit about about the strange ways people pronounce words here. So I’d like to take a poll. Is it kitty corner or catty corner? Is karaoke pronounced carry-oh-key or kuh-row-key?
I’m super interested to find out if you guys think I have an accent. As I mention in the video, I’m originally from northern Indiana but have lived in North Dakota for the past 10 years, and both ways of saying things come out in certain words. At the end of the day though, I consider myself a Hoosier and still say many words and phrases the Indiana way. I actually tease my friends up here probably too much for the way they say things. Of course I’m in the minority now but it’s kind of fun to be aware of those differences.
