  • I got "North Central", which said ""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." - which is bang-on, because I AM Canadian!!

  • Yeah, umm, not so accurate in my case. I'm from Louisiana, moved to Kansas when I was thirteen, back down to Louisiana when I was 17, and all over after that, including Japan. I now live in Connecticut, for the past 9 years. Somehow that has translated to Philidelphia?!?

  • .Sorry...Not only NOT from the inland north, but the closest I've been to being there is driving through part of Michigan (I think...maybe not even that). I'm from upstate NY and lived about 1/2 my life in Ga. But, after about 15 years in Ga., people there still pegged me as from the NE, so I think it's pretty obvious this test doesn't work very well, based on the comments I've read.

  • It is I had a southern accent not correct I have lived in the midwest most of my life Nebraska,Missouri, I was station in Louisana while in the Army. I know the letter "R" is not a word. Most of my family thinks the Midwest speaks proper with no accent, really test not correct for me!!! hmmmm

  • Well, I took the test and the location given for me was totally off the beaten path. It stated that I was from the Northeast and I was born and raised in the South! I guess having proper grammar is not a qualification. The test was very interesting.

  • Apparently if you pronounce things correctly, (like saying Bag is the same vowel as Vague, which it is--a long A--or saying Horrible is the same O as Whore--which it is, a long O--then you are from Wisconsin.

    Ok, whatever - but it's the correct dictionary pronunciation. We only have one language..

  • I am originally came from New Jersey, and when I moved to California at the age of 6 in or around the early 60's, my New Jersey accent was so heavy my Grade School teacher thought I had a speech impediment. Funny thing was she talked like a "Valley Girl."

  • The quiz said I was from Philly area but I grew up on Long Island,NY and have lived in deep South for last 33 years and thought I lost any trace of 'up North' accent. When I'm in the South I have been told I have a touch of Northern accent-when I'm up North have been told they could tell I was from the South. I give up and just talk as tho I'm just an AMERICAN!!!!

  • I am from Maine and have a strong northern accent - yet my results were "North Central" - have to wonder if this quiz can really pick up on a northern accent - didn't see any questions like do words that end in "er" and "a" sound the same, nothing about park and car etc

  • I have lived my entire life from infancy to age 68 in east central Georgia (USA) and whoever created this quiz thinks my answers indicate that I have a JERSEY accent??? Whereas for my entire life, no one has ever mistaken my accent for anything other than authentically, quintessentially Southern to the max! Somebody needs to take a reality check and accept that he/she doesn't actually know diddly-squat about regional linguistic markers!

  • 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.

    Yay! i am infact from the west :3

  • It said I have a Boston accent with 94% probability? Completely wrong. My parents are from Boston and I know how they and their relatives sound, and I do NOT pronounce things like they do. I probably have some vestiges of it but there is a massive difference in how they talk than "normal"

  • Well, it's 88% certain I'm from the Northeast. I'm actually from south-east Scotland and didn't move to the US until I was 26. Then again, I lived in Virginia for four years, and I've been in Wisconsin for about 15, so maybe my average location by now has reached New York by now.

  • As someone who grew up on the Georgia/Alabama line and who could give Scarlet O'Hara a run for her money when it comes to drawls, this quiz's completely off. Got Midland, then West, even when I took it while doing the worst Alabaman accent I could.

  • 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."

    i am from nc!

  • I'm thinking that this quiz has an Eastern coast bias...just because I pronounce words the way they are supposed to be pronounced doesn't mean that I am from the Northeaster part of the US...I am an original Californian, living in the SF Bay Area all my life with no Eastern relatives known to me...

  • I was born in Massachuestts as a snowbird going to Florida every winter, then lived in New Jersey, Philidelphia area, then out to California but toured the U.S. in show business for over 30 years. You called me midland but My home is Florida for over 50 years. But I do live on the west coast of florida. So Midland I can not see.

    I find it funny that i got this since i am Canadian.

  • Seriously hilarious - The quiz result says I'm from boston, and I was born in San Diego! My mother is from NY and I know I say a few things differently - why don't you ask how to pronounce "orange"? Do you pronounce the "o" like the "oh" in "lions and tigers and bears, oh my"? or do you say it to rhyme with the first syllable of "awful"?!!!

  • True, I am from Wisconsin and yes I can even ketch myself saying things with dah yoopers' accent, but I rarely say pop, soda is my word of choice for that kind of beverage. Other than that this was probably the most accurate test I have taken online.

  • Ok first of all everybody in Cali has no accent.The only people that will have kind of a different accent are people from a different country but thats different.Sometimes people will have a different accentt from here or either they are from another state.Like my neice was born here in california but she only lived here for 2 years then she went to florida,japan,now mississippi so im pretty sure almost all of us have no accent.
