What is the tumblr accent challange?
The tumblr accent challenge is a game poking fun at how different accents effect the pronunciation of words(route [root, rout]) or choice of words (pop v.s. soda).
The point of the game is to show how varied accents can be even within the same country. Its all in good fun and pretty interesting.
Here are the standard things to say:
"Your name and username."
"Where you’re from."
Pronounce the following words: Aunt, Roof, Route, Theater, Iron, Salmon, Caramel, Fire, Water, New Orleans, Pecan, Both, Again, Probably, Alabama, Lawyer, Coupon, Mayonnaise, Pajamas, Caught, Naturally, Aluminium, GIF, Tumblr, Crackerjack, Doorknob, Envelope, GPOY.
"What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?"
"What is a bubbly carbonated drink called?"
"What do you call gym shoes?"
"What do you call your grandparents?"
"What do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket?"
"What is the thing you change the TV channel with?"
"Choose a book and read a passage from it."
"Do you think you have an accent?"
"Be a wizard or a vampire?"
"Do you know anyone on Tumblr in real life?"
"End audio post by saying any THREE words you want."
