Quiz: What American accent do you have?
 
Learning Spanish so I've been reading up on accents and came across this quiz. Post your results.

[quote]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."[/quote]

This quiz blows......
Its says I'm from either Philly, Baltimore or Jersey.

Loud and proud, baby.

[QUOTE][B]Your Result: Philadelphia[/B]

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.[/QUOTE]

How about the word "water".

Most in the country say the first vowel the same way a doctor would say open up and say "ahhh". Not Philly. We say wooter.

We're weird. And we're assholes. Sorry!

LOL it says im North Central. I have no idea where that came from.....

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.

It's just like in the word "whore."


[QUOTE]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.[/QUOTE]

Philly accent second, makes sense since I've lived in PA almost 3 decades since moving from MD.

No real accent is accurate because I like to pronounce everything properly, intentionally.

Good voice for radio? Yep, I have been the voice of a phone system before (recorded the greeting/menu system/options for my company once).

Funny I was also Inland North. I did spend two week in Chicago in 1994 so maybe thats why. LOL

[quote=saden1;808701]The Inland North...yeah, i've never lived anywhere near Chicago or Wisconsin.[/quote]Same here. I've lived in Murrland, from All-neey, to Sal's-Bury, to Bahlmur. If anything I think that when I've had too much to drink or not enough sleep I drag out my Os or add Ws to them. But I definitely have never had someone tell me I sound like I'm from Chicago or Wisconsin.

Thankfully, Boston was at the bottom of my list. I think that could be THE WORST accent in the nation, almost the world...down there with the French phlegm-speak.

Also, ever notice how many British women sound great when they speak, but the British men sound annoying? I even had a British woman voice on my GPS for a while, until she started mispronouncing too many street names.

Lots of the Philly thing going on, that's where it put me too. Midland was second. I grew up in MD, in Mont. County.

Inland north for me too? I'm from Appalachia, pure bred hill jack. I've lived all across the country except the great white north.
