  • What? It said I have a Californian accent...I've never even been to California and I grew up in New York City my entire life of 20 years. I wonder if I picked up a Californian accent from my parents who don't speak any English but maybe the language dialect is close to how Californians speak English?

  • I tried it twice. The first time I based it on what I know today can pronounce many of these words differently and do for the most part if I had to carefully speak. The results was that it said I was from the north east. The 2nd time I based it on what my original accent was 20 yrs. ago and I come from the Hawaiian islands. It said I have the midland accent?

  • Like totally awesome quiz dude! I got 100% west accent! i am actually a valley girl.i was born in North California in Santa Cruz. And then when i was about 2 mon old, we moved to the south.We never went back(well i did for visits). i guess when you breathe cali air, the accent sticks w/ you.I've never had a southern accent.Cali Rocks!!

  • 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."

    that is awesome!! so accurate! i live in michigan so, the great lakes thing is so true! and i do call carbonated drinks "pop."

  • I'm 80 miles north of London England and entered this quiz for a laugh - it may interest you people to know that I got Philadelphia, so maybe Philadelphian accent is closest to a mild English accent as you can get, even though in real life situations Americans often comment I sound Australian lol

  • This quiz isn't that accurate . . . it says I have a Boston accent, with the bar almost full, and I don't live in Boston. Other options there, in order, with the red part of the bars rather small, are The West, The Midland, The Northeast, North Central, Philadelphia, The Inland North, and lastly, The South.

  • I'm actually from Washington (not to be confused with WARSHINGTON). According to this though I'm much closer to sounding like a Northern Central accent. It makes a little sense though. I took a trip up to Canada a few years back and I just haven't been able to quite pronounce my "about"s the same way since.

  • I've realized i got more accurate results when i got someone else to answer the questions for me. I took the quiz three times, and i got a different accent three different times, and none of them were accurate.I think its cause its hard to be able to tell your own accent, when i got a friend to give me this quiz, i got accurate results two times in a row. I'm from South Jersey by the way.

  • Just "the South"? Obviously, this person has not traveled across Texas, never mind the rest of the South. Just here in Texas you can tell Dallas, from San Antonio from Houston, from Pammpa, from Laredo, etc.... except McAllen, which is full of transplnted yankee snowbirds that never go home!

  • Despite being from southern New England (CT) I apparently have no accent. Could be because I was taught to speak in NYC, raised partially in the Mid West, and spents years in the military living on each coast and HI. Still, it is disappointing being told I have a "Midlander" asccent!

  • Pretty close - mine said Inland North, but the South (which is correct) was second in my list. After changing item 11, it correctly identified me as from the South.

    And for the record, it's not pop; it's not soda; it's COKE - no matter what fizzy drink you're talking about! :) "Do you want a Coke?" "Yeah, get me a Sprite, please."

  • I clearly have a Texas accent... and this stupid thing said I was Midland and obviously they didn't mean Midland, TX.

    Oh and btw, we rednecks don't say "soda" either, we call everything Coke. Like in... "Do y'all want a Coke?"

    "What kind?"
    "Dr Pepper?"

    Only the idiot yankees say "pop" which sounds so stupid to us southerners.

  • I should have not taken the quiz in the first place, as I am neither an American nor a resident of the US. I was just intrigued as to what my accent usually is when I speak English. I do not know whether the quiz was accurate but it said I have a Philadelphian accent. Well, I would not know the real score. I am from the Philippines and I have never been to the US in fact.

  • I got Midland XD I'm from the east but I pick up on the way some people pronounce things, like I use the British pronunciation 'bruv' instead of 'bruh'. Overall this was fantastic!

  • My accent cant really be found in this quiz as I have parents from Boston and a parent who lived all over the place but mainly Germany and lived in airizona a few years and Ive lived all over the world myself I think thats why my top 3 where within 5% of each other with Boston following far behind below 30%

  • Result was midland but I definitely have a Boston accent, it was #2, but I have a Boston accent. This quiz is good, but it should have more questions, it should ask about words from different areas like in Boston we say Packie for liquor store or for u-turns we say bang a u-euy

  • So I grew up in Central Ohio all my life never once been to the west coast. The farthset west I've been is Illinois. But yet apparently I'm classified as a west coast southern California surfer duuuuuuuude. But I could easily be from Atlanta or Dallas. What about OHIO

  • Your Result: The South 85%

    That's a Southern accent you've got there. You may love it, you may hate it, you may swear you don't have it, but whatever the case, we can hear it.

    77% The Midland
    58% Philadelphia
    57% The Inland North
    43% The Northeast
    28% The West
    17% North Central
    7% Boston

  • 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."
