    "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."

    I`m from California...I hate when things like this are right...

    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.

    Excuse me, BigBonny, but no one can say that they talk properly. Everyone talks different in each country, therefore You cannot say oyu talk properly for an American quiz thing. And English is different from american english or whatever. (please note they are different. Almost same but different)

    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.

    "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.

    "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. I am canadian.

    -
    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.

    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?

    Your Result: The Midland

    "You have a Midland accent" is just another way of saying "you don`t have an accent."

    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."

    "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 was rather surprised by the description. Although I am from PA, Everyone where I live has a coal cracker accent.

    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.

    I live in Maine now, but haven`t adopted the Maine accent. People always comment on my slightly Canadian accent because I lived there for the first 9 years of my life. Smart quiz.

And English is different from american english or whatever. (please note they are different. Almost same but different)"

    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!)

    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.

    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*

    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.

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

    I`m from the US, and I lived with two British girls for a summer. I could barely understand them (they`re from Birmingham, if it matters), while they could understand me with no problem. If we`re speaking the same language, who is at fault?

    it says I have a philly accent (philadelphia, fyi) which is good, because I`m from North Jersey originally.

    guess I haven`t been in chicago long enough to pick up the accent.

    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    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: 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.
