Read this passage from The Speech Accent Archive:

Please call Stella. Ask her to bring these things with her from the store: Six spoons of fresh snow peas, five thick slabs of blue cheese, and maybe a snack for her brother Bob. We also need a small plastic snake and a big toy frog for the kids. She can scoop these things into three red bags, and we will go meet her Wednesday at the train station


  1. I love the way you say "coupon" and "orange"! I think you have a very cute accent :)

  3. Xenia-Arrrrrange! I'm a pirate. haha

    Zoe- Eee, thank you so much!! :D

  4. This is so cute and I call them "buggies" too! By the way...this might be because I've been in Bama for a few years now, but when rain falls while the sun is shining it's when "the devil is beating his wife"....not sure why! Haha.

  5. Michele: Oh, I have heard that! It's just not something I commonly hear so I didn't think of it. :)

  6. Yea, when it rains when the sun is shining we always say "the devil is mad at his wife"

  7. This is so funny! I must try it with my portuguese accent..ahaha! :)

  8. Just tried this. I'm from Oklahoma and pronounced a lot the same way you do. :)
