Your Result: The Inland North


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."


I don't. I call it soda.

The South. I have taken this before. Although, it has been moderated by my brief stint in New England, years of voice lessons and studies of foreign languages.

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

Judging by how you talk you are probably from north Jersey, New York City, Connecticut or Rhode Island. Chances are, if you are from New York City (and not those other places) people would probably be able to tell if they actually heard you speak.

Chances are they are correct.

No big surprise. The South. I'm from North Louisiana, too far north to have the Cajun accent or dialect.

Midland. I was born in NJ, raised in NEPA so it's somewhat correct.

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.
Result Breakdown:
90% The Midland
88% The South
73% Philadelphia
64% The Northeast
63% The Inland North
29% The West
19% Boston
0% North Central
Quiz URL: http://www.gotoquiz.com/what_america...nt_do_you_have

I always laugh when I hear people say they are going to drink some "pop" because a couple of the guys I've dated have called their fathers "pop" so my first thought is "you're going to drink your father?"

I don't. I call it soda.
Ditto to both of these, though I don't think I sound anything like people from up north. "Pop" is the sound a balloon makes when you stomp on it, not the name of a beverage.

I have a mid-western southern accent - laugh!!! I was born in St. Louis but spent 6 years during my tween/teen years in Birmingham, AL - I returned to St. Louis at 16 and then spent 3 years in undergrad in Alabama. After my third year in college I returned (and finished up undergrad) to St. Louis. So saying things like, hearr - emphasis are the 'earr' sound and "what he said" all in the same sentence. According to the test I have a southern accent.

I thought for sure I'd get south, but got west! I guess I really don't have that heavy of a southern twang as I thought.
