This submission is now closed.
I'm making a short video for my 'extras' playlist people pronouncing 'Uranus' one after another. If you would like to be included, here is what I need from you within the next few days:
- A video of yourself saying 'Uranus' while holding a card with your name at the top and the state / province / subnational unit and country you grew up in at the bottom. (Not where you currently live) Don't worry if your camera makes the text backwards. I can flip it in post-production.
- Say 'Uranus' as you normally would, not as you think you're supposed to. Make sure your audio is clear and loud.
- Bonus points if you're a native speaker of a non-english language and can say the name in your language. If so, please also include the name of your language on the card.
I can't promise I'll use all submissions, but you have a better chance of being used if:
- The audio is clear.
- You or your background is ammusing somehow.
- You get it to me ASAP. (Deadline is a vague 'in the next few days')
When you're done, email me your results at CGPGrey@Gmail.com and let me know your twitter account, if you have one.
