    Default What American accent do you have?

    I know a lot, if not most, people on here aren't American, but who doesn't love a pointless quiz.

    Shocker! My accent has been determined to be southern, y'all.

    The Inland North, not a surprise since I'm from the Chicago area.

    Loved the Quiz! I'm from Inland North, which is right on because I am from Michigan. And yes, I do call a carbonated beverage a pop and not a "soda".
    So you hate your job? There's a support group for that....It's called EVERYBODY and they meet at the bar.

    I'm with you guys - full on Inland North. And I do get the question: Are you from Wisconsin? Yup!
    You were lucky to have me. But you know what? I think I already got the best part of you. And she's standing right out there. I don't know... what's left just doesn't look so good anymore. Hope Floats

    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.

    Midland. But I can sound verrrrrry Southern (spec. Memphis, Tenn.) from time to time when I'm tired.

    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.

    Hehehe. I think the only word that gives me away when I'm fit and alert is the way I say Memphis (Meh-phus uh, well, that's closest I think, phonetically, heehee).

    Just as I thought. I have no accent (midland). Says I'd have a great voice for tv or radio.

    I think that 'Wisconsin' or 'Michigan' accent is soooo distinct...I can pick it up immediately. Most people have no idea what I mean when I say that.

    I have a Midland accent, with a little bit of an East Texas twang.

    Hoo boy, I know exactly what you mean, Al! I grew up in Northern Ontario (Canada), but it was a border town with Michigan. That accent dominated our radio ads. Very distinct, instantly recognizable, and to be honest, I can't stand it. (Please don't hate! )

    Just to clarify, I'm not referring to the "Fargo" type of accent - the Northern Michigan one is... a whole other breed.

    I'm Inland North, natch.
