It says I have a southern accent even though I was raised on the East Coast. But, then again, growing up I spent most of my summers in the south and picked up some southern twang that pops up every now and then when I talk.

Hmmm, Midland. I'm not surprised. I'm told frequently that I have no accent, and I once auditioned for and succesfully GOT a job as a local NPR presenter. Had to turn it down in the end, though. Sadness. I would have really loved that job.

Mine came out Inland North ... so totally off. I'm from the South, definitely speak with a Southern accent but I think because I enunciate my words very clearly, it threw off the test~
Mine came up Philadelphia. It also pointed out that if I wasn't from Philadelphia, than I was from some place close, like South Jersey, Baltimore or Wilmington. Lo and behold, I'm from Baltimore!!
I swear I don't have that accent, hon....
What American accent do you have?
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."
this is annoying, because i really do think i speak perfect english. since i've moved out west, i am constantly getting called out on my "accent". i just don't hear it!
I got Inland North too and never realized I had an accent until I visited some friends in Denver. They started laughing at my "Michigan" accent...I was like uhhh, ok?
Mischief. Mayhem. Tattoos. Soap.
No big surprise.... southern. They even got the city where I'm from right.

I am from Ohio. Probably an hour and a half away or so from Youngstown and 45 mintues from Pittsburgh. My town is really small though and I hate it.
"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 got Midland meaning I have no accent which was what I thought. I'm from the DC area and I think we talk plain. Although when I go up north they say I've got a southern twang and the southerners call me say I have a yankee accent (whatever that is)...
So where do I belong?
I really wish I had an Australian accent. Do you think someone could move there at 26 yrs old and obtain the accent, even if its just slightly???
^ I think it's definitely possible, it depends on the person in my experience. My husband and I seem to pick up our friends' Scottish accents just by being around them (in Canada), lol. I know we definitely picked it up when we traveled there for a month. I think coming from a pretty neutral accent (like Canadian/Midland) you're a lot more susceptible to absorbing a stronger one.

I am from "The West" which is actually where I'm from.
