On my teen forum they have an accent challenge thread. Lots of my friends were doing it, so I finally got up my nerve and did it. This is the first time I have ever spoke online. The "challenge" is to say your username, say where you are from and then read off a list of words. I'm mainly nonverbal and have apraxia of speech, so in my case it really was a challenge :D

These are the words:

What is your name/username?
Where are you from?
Pronounce the following words:
Aunt, Roof, Route, Theater, Iron, Salmon, Caramel, Fire, Water, New Orleans, Pecan, Both, Again, Probably, Alabama, Lawyer, Coupon, Mayonnaise, Pajamas, Caught, Naturally, Aluminium, GIF, Tumblr, Crackerjack, Doorknob, Envelope, GPOY, Polka Dots, Tumblr, Papaya, Penthouse, Subtext, Smile

You must have grown a lot. How tall are you? I bet you are speaking better with therapy. You have a Pacific Northwest accent.

I forgot to take into consideration that my mom grew up in Oregon and my grandparents still live there, so that might have something to do with it.
