Accent Thread March 2020

We haven’t had an accent thread in a few months, so I thought it would be fun to throw one together. You can use vocaroo to make recording of your accent and share it here.

Need a suggestion if what to say? Perhaps you can read William Carlos William’s poem, “This is Just to Say”

I have eaten
the plums
that were in
the icebox

and which
you were probably
for breakfast

Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold

Another possibility would be a tongue twister like one:

Betty Botter bought some butter
But she said the butter’s bitter
If I put it in my batter, it will make my batter bitter
But a bit of better butter will make my batter better
So ‘twas better Betty Botter bought a bit of better butter

Have fun!
