Dialect Vlog – Minnesota!

March 5, 2011

I wanted to join along in the fun at Mama Dweeb’s blog.  Mostly just to compare how I talk vs. how other people talk!

Being that I’m on my way out to a vow renewal ceremony and my babysitter is waiting here while I type this, I should get going!

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?

    I didn't detect any accent. You are adorable. So funny that your little guy came out while you were vlogging. =) My 7yo helped me with mine. Your vlog is bright N cheery. Mine is dark because I did mine in bad light and around 11pm. I let my boys stay up late on Friday nigihts.

    No accent at all! But I say soda…but a lot of people in Utah call it pop.

    The most Minnesotan thing you said was "Bag".
    Fun list of words. Here in Texas there are many words that sound funny to me. For example, my pastor said "boil water" this morning and I thought he said bowl water! Renee

  7. you're too cute. are you a native to Minnesota because you don't sound like it

  8. So cute!! I love that you say "ont" for aunt!

    I just did one of these on my blog, too. So much fun.

  9. Oh Amy. You sound like Amy to me 🙂

  10. I only noticed an accent when you said aunt and bag. It's so fun to put a voice with your blog!

  11. Hi Amy!! So glad you joined, I didn't know you were from Minnesota. Before I click play I am expecting you to sound like my relatives from Wisconsin, heavy on the "oh" sound. We'll see 🙂
    You don't have as heavy of an accent as I expected but you do say "both" like my aunt does…and house, you sound like her too 🙂

    LOL you said "Beg" for "bag" 🙂

    I am going to do another one of these cause I have been collecting ideas and words from people. I like you Bag vs. sack idea a lot! Will add it to the list!
