What American accent do you have?
Your Result: North Central

"North Central" is what professional linguists call the Minnesota accent. If you saw "Fargo" you probably didn`t think the characters sounded very out of the ordinary. Outsiders probably mistake you for a Canadian a lot.

That`s me!!

Eh. I have a Mid-land accent (or no accent). It`s kinda right, I guess? But I`m in Mass.

I`ve been told I have an accent before. But a foreign one rather than American. It`s weird considering I only listen to my Native tongue (Tagalog/Visayan) spoken but I never actually speak anything other than English...

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`m from houston, tx. i pretty much think that conts as a big southern city so yay. it got me right.

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.
Philadelphia

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

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.

Your accent is as Philadelphian as a cheesesteak! If you`re not from Philadelphia, then you`re from someplace near there like south Jersey, Baltimore, or Wilmington. if you`ve ever journeyed to some far off place where people don`t know that Philly has an accent, someone may have thought you talked a little weird even though they didn`t have a clue what accent it was they heard.


Philadelphia? I`m not even sure where it is.

They hit it on the nose, I`m from Seattle. Originally born in SoCal but whatever, only lived there for four years.

BTW: That "Mary", "merry", and "marry" stuff - I pronounce them all the same. My father, a swiss-Italian/German pronounced them all differently and correctly right on the spot when my sister asked him to say them all after she took a phonetics class. It was very cool! I wish he`d do it again...

I live near Charleston...

In any case, what`s weird about it saying I have no accent is that fact I have a slightly strong accent. One I can`t figure out. My accent should be a mix of swiss-Italian and American English - slightly southern of the latter I suppose since my mother`s family`s side (the ones I live with/near) are southern. *shrugs*

I got Midland and I`m from the mountains in New York State.

The Midland "accent" is what linguists call Standard American English.

So if you get Midland that doesn`t mean it thinks you`re from Ohio, it just means you speak Standard, American, textbook/dictionary English, the way a large percentage of Americans speak.

(Its good I got Midland, I`ve got a degree in English and Linguistics, and I would have been disappointed to not be Standard, though there`s nothing wrong with being non-standard!)

You definitely have a Boston accent, even if you think you don`t. Of course, that doesn`t mean you are from the Boston area, you may also be from New Hampshire or Maine.

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`m from Atlanta! =O

"North Central" is what professional linguists call the Minnesota accent. If you saw "Fargo" you probably didn`t think the characters sounded very out of the ordinary. Outsiders probably mistake you for a Canadian a lot.

well, I am Canadian and that is cool.

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.

rawr_noozle: You can`t really have "no accent" since your accent differs from every other accent in the country. On the other hand, here in Sweden the government decided somewhere in the thirties that the accent spoken in the city housing the country`s largest university would be the "national Swedish", meaning that all people appearing on radio and later TV should talk like that, maybe something similar happened in the US?

Oh and "caller" versus "collar"... where I`m from it sounds like "kawler" and "kolla" - fairly different.

Apparently I`m from the Northeast which is weird because I`m Australian. (but I couldn`t resist doing this survey anyway).

BTW, everyone has an accent. There is no such thing as "no" accent. Any American that came to my country would straight away be identified as North American. You cannot miss it.

"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.

Yeah, I`m about 50 miles from Philly.

"And English is different from american english or whatever."

Not exactly. If I went to England and asked for a cup of tea, I am pretty sure I would not get a copy of a Paris Hilton C.D. Although, I would only get one of those in hell.

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."
ive only lived in england and australia lol

Lol.
Im from the UK so I just put on my `best` (please read, most unconvincing) American accent and took the test. Before I started I thought that I would probably sound like someone from the west... my reasoning? TV, I guess we see a lot more shows from the west of the US and as the test states, its quite a generic American accent.

Anyways my results said I was in fact from the west, yay! Oh, and you ppl talks funny.

there was a different one posted some time ago about whether you were a yankee or a englander or something based on your accent... i liked that one lots better
