Accent Tag Challenge With 30+ Different Countries Participating! (With Audios)

Accent Tag Words Challenge, are you ready?

Quick question – have you heard about ‘the accent tag challenge’ before? I remember it got viral 5 years ago or so.

If you’re not familiar, this challenge was created by the linguist Bert Vaux when he posted a corpus of words and questions on his Harvard website back in the early 2000s. Little did he know that what he started will become a global craze!

There were two parts to the challenge but for now we will only be doing the first part. The first part requires the participant to pronounce a list of words the way it is normally pronounced in his or her area. This will help to determine the accent of the participant. This part is called the accent tag words.

My online friends here at ConnectPals and WhatsApp group got so excited to be part of this blog while also sharing their accent tag challenge audio.
