Purty huh?

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Midland

"You have a Midland accent" is just another way of saying "you don't have an accent." You probably are from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri) but then for all we know you could be from Florida or Charleston or one of those big southern cities like Atlanta or Dallas. You have a good voice for TV and radio.

The West

North Central

The South

The Inland North



The Northeast

I thought this was interesting. I stole found this in one of Buck's past posts.

The one you took labelled me as Western too...sad. Probably made by yankees wanting us to question our roots. This one made me feel MUCH better!

i scored 100% Dixie! i can't tell you the relief i felt.

Buck said...

IIRC this test said I had a Southern accent. Which I most assuredly don't. I might have been born in Jawja, but you'd never know that from listening to me...

Becky said...

It got me wrong, too. It said I have a midland accent, but most folks I talk to say that I have a strong Texas accent--sort of Southern, sort of Western.

Piper: LOL

Buck: A Jawja accent is very distinct. It makes me think of sweet tea and southern belles. You have lived so many places picking one distinct region where your accent is from would be hard. I bet you have a New Mexican accent.

Becky: I think my results are some what accurate. I think it is from being born and raised in New Mexico. New Mexicans really don't have an accent. Some do and it is mostly a Hispanic accent.

Mine seems accurate: You may think you speak "Standard English straight out of the dictionary" but when you step away from the Great Lakes you get asked annoying questions like "Are you from Wisconsin?" or "Are you from Chicago?" Chances are you call carbonated drinks "pop."
