The answer is yes. During a twitter discussion a (geeky) idea for a game was born. Dialects are interesting; and everyone knows that accents are hot…and we ARE Speech and Language experts…
If we could only hear a voice would we be able to tell where the speaker was geographically from? (Ew I ended a sentence with “from” – I hate that almost as much as ending a sentence with “with.” Double ew.)
To play along send an audio recording of yourself reading the rainbow passage found here along with your twitter handle and your geographic location. Email them to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will add them to our game.
Our SLPeep group is international so I can’t wait to hear all the recordings. This game will be more fun if greater numbers of people participate, so non-speechies please feel free to join in! Sent from my BlackBerry® wireless handheld
