    The south baby - big surprise there!

    Along the lines of what Alice was saying earlier, it drives me crazy when people (yankees - not an insult) say "a-boot" instead of "ABOUT"!!!

    I got Midwest and I'm from Kansas. Though I can sound very Southern or New York depending on who I'm hanging with.

    My biggest grammar pet peeve is Nor'easters who say 'wursh' instead of 'wash'. Ugh!!!!!

    This one grates at me too. My MIL actually says this, but I have no clue how she picked it up. I also worked with someone who did as well, and at first I didn't know what the hell she was saying!
    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

    It says West, or no accent, but that's just because I know how words are "properly" pronounced (dictionary pronunciations.)

    BUT, I've lived in Northern Florida (sometimes called southern Georgia) and been surrounded by the thickest hick, southern accents ever. And because I've made fun of the southern accent for so long, it's grown into an almost real accent so the jokes on me. Mostly it comes out when I'm drunk.

    Also my Mexican accent comes out sometimes when I'm REALLY drunk--"church" becomes "shurch," and "live" becomes "leeve."

    What American accent do you have?
    Your Result: Boston

    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.

    Nailed it. Grew up just south of Boston. Wicked pissah.

    Akron/Canton area.

    Do you hear much of the Pittsburgh "accent" in Youngstown? We head to PA quite a bit (future ex-husband from there).

    I hope today's snow isn't too bad for you!

    Midland, I'm in Iowa, and usually get mistaken for a Chicago accent.

    I say 'wursh' from time to time, I got it from my Mom who grew up in New Hampshire. She also says 'idear' and 'pict-ture'. I remember being teased mercilessly in grade school for saying Wurshington DC.

    for me the midland accent got slightly edged out by the west. They're almost at the same level though...I guess spending your childhood in wisconsin and your teenage years in oregon will do that to you.

    ^^ Have you ever listened to Dawn and Drew? Her Wisconsin accent is the best!

    Cool, it said

    MIDLAND!!


    I am from Ohio, but I lived in Philly for 6 years. I know I don't have a NY/Philly accent at all. That was fun.

    For me it's a mixture of brittish and american accent, spoken by a frenchman who keeps some french accent...

    The result is... Strange...
