Default Official Post Your Accent Thread (while the rest of us guess what city/state/region you're from)

basically this thread is a spinoff of this thread:
Do I have a Southern accent?

i'll start it off.

YouTube - Post your accent

hopefully a lot of us on CD will post our accents and we'll "have fun" listening to ppl from various states while getting to hear the voices behind the screen names.

i used my iphone.

maybe you can use your phone to record your voice or a video if you don't have voice recording on your phone and then upload the file from your phone or drag the file from your phone to your computer and then upload it to youtube or usershare or something.

Eek = Noo Yawk.

Edit: also, probably African-American. No offense intended.

All I have to say Flyingwriter, is that you seem to sound very northern and I'da never guessed you were a brother had you not told me! You fit the accent "mold" so much better than I do -- I think...

Are there some set of words everyone should say? Like:

Pasta
Car
Milk
Pillow
Throw
Tube
Cheer
Far

...and so on?

Your accent is extremely heavy. Probably about as heavy as my southern one. I don't have any idea how to put that stuff up though.

Can I just call Flywriter and you record my message or something? This is a great idea!
