Accent Tag Shows How People Talk Around the World

This meme shows people around the world pronouncing a list of words and answering questions. I couldn’t find a single one from Lafayette, so I did one.  It’s pretty amusing to hear all the different dialects. I selected a few places and pared them down to the list below- some of these people went on forever before they actually got to the words and the questions. There were quite a few from New Orleans and ‘Louisiana,’ though. My accent is not very interesting so I encourage everyone to check these out, then make your own video (the list of words is at the bottom), upload it to YouTube and title it ‘Accent Tag- Lafayette, Louisiana’ – tag KTDY and send us the link so we can share them with everyone!

I’ll start:

Lafayette, Louisiana

New Orleans




The list of words:

Wash, Oil, Theater, Sure, Data, Ruin, Crayon, Toilet, Spitting Image, Syrup, Aunt, Roof, Route, Theater, Iron, Salmon, Caramel, Fire, Water, New Orleans, Pecan, Both, Again, Probably, Alabama, Lawyer, Coupon, Mayonnaise, Pyjamas, Caught, Naturally, Aluminum, Envelope.

And the questions:

  1. What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?
  2. What is the bug that when you touch it, it curls into a ball?
  3. What is a bubbly carbonated drink called?
  4. What do you call gym shoes?
  5. What do you call your grandparents?
  6. What do you call the kind of spider (or spider-like creature) that has an oval-shaped body and extremely long legs?
  7. What do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket?
  8. What is the thing you change the TV channel with?
  9. What do you call it when rain falls while the sun is shining?
  10. What do you say to address a group of people?
