Default Speaking of where you're from: I wanna know what y'all sound like...

Do any of you have a clip of yourself saying something? I have everyone's "voice" in my head & I doubt they sound at all like I think.

That would be neat, to hear everyone's different voices. I don't have a clip of myself talking or anything, but that would definitely be interesting.

I would be the one behind the camera speaking. The other girl's my roommate

I avoid talking on tape. I always sound like a baby on tape. That's not my opinion, everyone says that.

I don't like my recorded voice.

But I am curious what our voices sound like in your head

What do I sound like?


Both you and amandacurls have texan accents when I read your posts but yours is more bubbly sounding, if that makes sense. (probably not LOL)

Some posters do not have a voice but mannerisms when I read their posts. I see instead of hearing them.

I used to have a "Fort Worth accent," but I've lost it. My voice is not "high pitched" in the extreme case, but when I hear my voice recorded, it's much higher than what I hear in my head. It's not shrieky high but maybe a little higher pitched than most people...if that makes sense.
I occasionally throw in a "y'all."
I don't have a strong southern or Texan accent, but I can easily manufacture one. My mom and grandmother have strong southern accents. But being in a largely Hispanic population, I'm just not all that surrounded by southern accents anymore. I'm not. Maybe that's why I lost it.

I sound like a Midwesterner who's been living in San Antonio for 12 years, and who has been influenced by her Hispanic husband.

I work hard not to put the "g" on the end of "ing" words - I'm from the Midwest so I'm talkin', walkin' and eatin'. I also work hard to keep the farmer twang and to keep talkin' fast.

The biggest impact living with my husband has been with enunciation - the Tex-Mex accent is much crisper and more enunciated than my Midwest farmer twang.

And shoot me if I say "y'all". It's "you guys".

You can hear my voice in this babywearing video I posted on the P&P board:

Yep. In my mind Shelli, Meg and Amanda have high pitched voices with southern accents.

The ladies who have mentioned they are from the North East, I picture them using their hands a lot when talk and having a deeper throaty voice.

I hate my voice. My sister and I sound very similar.
It's Midwestern twang with a Chicago influence, but not the Jesse Jackson Chicago sound or the part of Chicago that says "RAD e a tor" Instead it's "ray dee a tor"
HTH!

Pixie you're ADORABLE (as is your little one). You remind me a lot of a friend I had in college... she was always one of the nicest, most cheerful people I've ever been around and your posts always have the same kind of 'feeling' for me

I'm from the northeast, and while in my head my voice sounds fairly soft, it is a pretty deep when I hear recordings. Although, once I called work and got told how deceptively sweet I sound on the phone and how jarring that is with my sour disposition. Haha. I've also been told and have sometimes found that I have a child-like quality to my voice.
I don't care for my voice recorded at all. I sound much better when in my head.
My ex made fun of how much I furrow my brow when I speak, and though I don't have a New York accent, he laughed that sometimes it would sneak in when I pronounced the word "forty." He had a New Zealand accent.

Perhaps one day I'll make a video and I'll get to listen and see if it's any different in that case.

I have a midwestern accent. Deep voice, perhaps rhaspy at times. I guess best way to describe it would be like demi moore, maybe a hair deeper. I don't think my voice gets as high as hers. I tend to speak quieter, least compared to most around here. But I don't mumble. I have a tendency at times to enunciate my words.

Oh God! I hope people don't think we sound like him.

And we all don't sound like them guys on SNL skits either. I DO. NOT. say "da" anything. And, another does not sound like anutter.

I don't have a recording for you to hear, but I have a serious Boston accent.

Well, I'm from Northern NJ and upstate NY, but now live in DC. I never thought much of me having an accent until one day I made some jerk chicken, and my mom (who's from the same place) asked me how I did that, and I replied,"it was easy! I used a sauce" but pronouncing sauce like "source", or "saw-ahs" and foil, like "foy-yel".
I thought I had toned it down, but then I go visit my dad in the Bronx every other month or so, and it gets even worse! Even after talking to NY relatives on the phone, I can hear it creeping back. Oh, and my kids make fun of me, because when I'm mad or if I'm yelling, it REALLY comes out!! LOL

cool idea! but I have no audio of myself...

I always thought I had no accent and was a little cocky about it because the Pittsburgh (where I'm from) accent/dialect gets no respect. [See: "The Stillers did it, baby!" thread]. That was until I spoke with a fellow from Canada who correctly pegged the accent I didn't think I had and said to me, "Oh, where's your accent from? The Northeast US, eh?"

I don't think he guessed I was from Pennsylvania, but I recall being so mortified that maybe he did and I just blocked that part out.
