What do you sound like?

Post by Babydoll » Thu Feb 08, 2018 10:45 pm

Regional accent? Loud or low talker? Deep or high?

I think mine is a average midwestern one, nothing that stands out. Being next to St. Louis I'm probably not saying "wash" or "forty" right.

From Southern England. No regional accent. Just a typical southern accent.

Reasonably deep voice.

Like most people, I don't like the sound of my voice! But a lot of people like it. Some have said I have the voice for radio.

Helsinki accent, sort of like Mike Monroe/Andy Mc Coy. Deep voice, not a loud talker.

I have a thick southern Oklahoma/North Texas accent. My voice is kind of deep. Probably from 25 years of smoking (quit 6 years ago). I have a tendency to talk loudly because that’s just how my family is. My husband is the complete opposite of me. He has a very thick Wisconsin accent and he’s really quiet.

I'm usually going for Korean immigrant in Boston, but I like to mix it up with some ebonics at official functions for obvious reasons.

My Masshole card is in danger of being revoked as for the last couple of years I have inexplicably been pronouncing my "r" 's properly.
I notice it every time I do it and it pisses me off because I can't stop it.

Upper midwest (Michigan), not loud...normal, I guess. People tell me I sound young on the phone. And I had no idea how I "sounded" until someone asked if I was from the Midwest. However, I pronounce "wash" with no R.
Fuck sigs.

My voice and diction sound like Rutger Hauer but faster and slightly higher pitched.

I can't describe it quite honestly. I'm from the South, have lived here most of my life, except for 2 years when I lived in Missouri, in a little town called Washington no less (and yes, the locals DO call it WARshington) but am told that I do not sound like a southerner. I do have a slight southern accent when saying certain words or if I'm talking really fast, but I mostly get told that I actually sound like I'm from Minnesota or Wisconsin (two states I have never been to in my life).

When I did live in MO, to my horror I did start picking up the regional accent, butchering vowels, adding the letter 'r' in places it didn't belong...("Ya, gat on intarstate 'farty far'" To self: omg what the fuck did I just say? GAH I gotta get out of this state!)

I over enunciate and hang on certain words.

So "cold" sometimes becomes "Co-woould"

People make fun of it.

I've been called a northern hillbilly since I'm in Illinois and my family comes from Oklahoma/TN/ WV. I spent way too much time around them all growing up, I guess. Other than that, I sound like a 70 year old bar fly with a 2 pack a day habit and slight retardation.

My accent changes depending on whom I'm speaking with. Apparently I'm a good mimic so people think I'm making fun of them when I talk to them for more than 5 minutes. I have to tell them it's not intentional, it's just how my brain processes things. It's kind of uncomfortable when I eat at any ethnic restaurant.

A weird hybrid of my native Georgia along with a little Southern Calif and Toronto mixed in. I went to high school in San Diego and tried really hard to lose/hide my Georgia accent, moved back to Georgia for a while and then spent 7 years in Toronto. I sound way more 'southern' that I think I sound when I hear my voice. :lol: :roll:

I see what you did there. In other words: "raspy and always sexy". I guess label land lies in Illinois.

Probably not unlike Paul Westerberg in this clip:

Now it's got some Southernness mixed in, in that I call everyone a motherfucker.

A cross between former NHL winger Brett Hull and Gregg Bissonette. Except with our local accent, which is difficult to describe.
