Guess the SLPeep! **EDITED WITH ANSWERS**

Yesterday was the anniversary of this blog, and to celebrate I present the first (of possibly several) SLPeep/SLGeek games.  What are the SLPeeps? Besides being the title of one of my blogrolls they are a professional network of smart, savvy (dare I say sexy) Speech Language Pathologists that initially found each other on twitter.   A few days ago I butted into a twitter convo about dialects and regional differences and the idea for this game was born….could we determine where each SLPeep was from simply by hearing their voice?

Everyone was invited to send in a recording of themselves reading THE RAINBOW PASSAGE, which is a standard reading passage.

Here we go…..to play leave a comment matching the 16 SLPeeps to one of the following accents. **NOTE some accents will be used more than once, but ALL will be used at least one time.  There will be a prize for the winner (whoever correctly guesses the most correct.) Also, the 16 wonderful SLPeeps are also eligible to play.

a)      Barbados

b)      Ireland

c)       (Massachusetts) USA

d)      (Missouri) USA

e)      (Montana) USA

f)       (New Jersey) USA

g)      (New York) USA

h)      New Zealand

i)        (Newfoundland) Canada

j)        (Ontario) Canada

k)   Trinidad

  4. All of my Canadian answers are stictly guesses between Ontario and Newfoundland. I have no idea!

    1. Canada (Ontario)
    2. Canada (Ontario)
    3. USA (New Jersey)
    4. USA (Montana)

  5. This was tough!! I made a lot of random guesses 🙂
    1. Ontario
    2. Barbados
    3. New Jersey
    4. Newfoundland
    5. Trinidad
    6. Ontario
    7. Missouri
    8. New York
    9. New Zealand
    10. Montana
    11. Ireland
    12. Massachusetts
    13. New York
    14. Massachusetts
    15. Ireland
    16. Newfoundland

    • OK, this was hard. I think I especially found NY and NJ tricky. Here are my guesses:

      1. Ontario
      2. Montana
      3. Massachusetts
      4. Newfoundland and Labrador (bonus points Renena?)
      5. Trinidad
      6. Ontario
      7. Missouri?
      8. New Jersey?
      9. New Zealand
      10. Ontario
      11. Ireland
      12. Massachusetts
      13. Ontario? – I’d rather say California…
      14. New York?
      15. Barbados
      16. New York?

      This was WAY harder than I thought and I think the NY/NJ girls were covering up their accents!!

  6. I think we needed to use a more typical passage with words like “about” and “bag.” The rainbow passage in and of itself seemed to allow us to mask our natural stresses – and then when you start making it sound “professional” it gets really hard.

  7. Jesh – who knows?!!

    1. Ontario
    2. Montana
    3. Mass.
    4. NL
    5. Barbados
    6. Ontario
    7. New Jersey
    8. Ontario
    9. Ireland
    10. Missouri
    11. New Zealand
    12. New York
    13. Montana
    14. Ontario
    15. Trinidad
    16. NL
