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:
95% The Midland
73% The West
63% The Inland North
54% The South
53% Philadelphia
50% Boston
49% North Central
45% The Northeast

Mine came back as North Central.

The interesting line was this: "outsiders probably mistake you for a Canadian a lot"

That's funny because I AM Canadian

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?"

Mine was Midland. I have lived in Alabama since I was 2 and was born in Virginia. But I sound a lot like my mom who has lived in several different places. It does sound pretty accurate because my husband always said my friends and I had our own accent.(or lack of one.) Maybe because we were all singers?
