Voice Meme! Gacked From chickadilly  
Make a voice post with the following things so that your F-list can hear how you pronounce them (and laugh at you, of course):

Your name and/or username
Where you’re from
The words “roof”, “aunt”, “direction”, and “naturally”; to which list the Q family appended “school”, “book”, “g’day”, “castle”, “grass”, “aluminium”, “herbs”, and “caramel” - and I added "dynasty", "theatre", "adult", "garage", advertisment", "fertile", "anaesthetist", "banana", "Berkshire", "Derby", "Hertford"
Your favourite song
Your favourite character
A word in a different language

I won't go all linguistic-y on you, though I can't yet tell American accents apart so I can't say too much :P (unless it's a very strong Texas accent or something and those I really only know from TV...) but Americans saying "aluminium" always makes me lol :P And we have "g'day" here too and you said it fine :P You also had a different syllable stressed in "advertisement" which interested me…

You actually called me on the two I expected. British English always sounds so much more polished than ours.
