That accent meme

I've enjoyed listening to those of my LJ friends who have done this, so I thought I'd do it too.

Here are the questions.

1.) Your name and/or username
2.) Where you're from
3.) The following words: Aunt, Roof, 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, Orange, Coffee, direction, naturally, aluminium and herbs
4.) What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?
5.) What is the bubbly carbonated drink called?
6.) What do you call gym shoes?
7.) What do you say to address a group of people?
8.) What do you call the kind of spider that has an oval-shaped body and extremely long legs?
9.) What do you call your grandparents?
10.) What do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket?
11.) What do you call it when rain falls while the sun is shining?
12.) What is the thing you change the TV channel with?

It is, as is usually the way with these things, US-centric, but here is my response.




I've lost most of the accent I had as a child, but you can still hear traces of Manchester in the fact that the way I say it, "aunt" sounds identical to "ant" and I still pronounce the "g" on the end of words ending in "ing".
