My American accent...

This quiz really works!

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.

I got the same results as you - I guess Montanans don't have accents either. ;-)

I got "The Northeast" (Jersey, New York City, Connecticut or Rhode Island)... I actually have a Southern English (British) accent.

This quiz worked for me. I'm from Missouri and it gave me a 100% midland rating.

If I work backwards from the quiz questions, I can pretend I don't have a Midwestern accent. ;)

Okay, I thought the test was right on. Midlands. Then I took the next one, Am I Crazy, and I turned up normal. Guess one out of two wasn't bad.

I'd love to see this for UK accents, although everyone in the UK probably knows what accent they have, except for a few delusionals near Birmingham who think they're posh. ;)

Example question:

Do these two words sound the same?:

1. Dave.
2. Dive.

I live in Manchester, and if you go 30 miles in any direction from here, the accent is very different, often to the point of being hard to understand, especially from taxi drivers (Liverpool is particularly bad for that).

The amazing thing about America is how uniform the accents are.

Got "The Northeast", which is true, in a number of ways. (i) I've lived in NYC for a decade, (ii) I come from Russia, which is like, the very far north-east. How could they guess? :-)) Amazing, *vot* else can I say?

Being another STL native, I got the same answer. If they wanted to be more specific and narrow down to STL, they should ask if "forty" rhymes with "party"?

I'm californian and that's the result that popped up once I've done the test, so it's not bad ;D
