Accent Quiz

I took this quiz and I thought I might sound like I was from back East because I don't feel like my accent changed at all moving to CA. However, it's interesting that it identifies me as having a midland accent from the West.

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
 
Boston
 
North Central
 
The Inland North
 
The South
 
Philadelphia
 
The Northeast

That was fun - I was not shocked at all that the South was highest for me - people here in CA will still sometimes tell me I sound like I am from the south. West was second though -so maybe CA is starting to sink in :)

Your accent is the lowest common denominator of American speech. Unless you're a SoCal surfer, no one thinks you have an accent. And really, you may not even be from the West at all, you could easily be from Florida or one of those big Southern cities like Dallas or Atlanta.

I think that was a neat test. People around here think I sound like I'm from CA and when I go home they say I've picked up on the midwest accent. So who knows what I sound like! I guess growing up in the west has impacted my accent! ;)
