  • first of all i agree with speechguru. also, if you speak from what you are taught in school and not what you hear in your area than you wouldn't have an "accent" either.

    quiz result: "Your accent is from the west 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"

    not even close. i am from maine. born and raised. i just chose not to sound like an ignorant hick. which, ironically, i am very proud of being.

  • My results said i have a northern New Jersey accent. I'm actually from England! Haha! :) I'm fascinated how some American accents sound like English ones. Particularly New England, New York some Texan and Virginian accents can sound kind of English.

  • "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."

    I'm actually from Texas. XD

  • Northeast but frankly speaking I am a non-native speaker from Poland. While modelling my accent after a range of British ones I encounter daily in my work, I would agree with Zugbach that there is a thing about New England being really New England

  • ""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."

    Good thing, too. I am Canadian.

  • Also, I say soda because I got tired of ppl actually giving me "Coke" when I said "coke". They were suppose to ask me what kind..duh?!? lol. You know it's funny. Wherever you go, ppl judge you by what you call soda, pop, coke, or any carbonated beverage. It's a common difference when discussing locals....

  • According to the quiz results, I'm "Inland North," but I was born an grew up in northern Virginia, and all my ancestors are traced back to the earliest of Viginia. I have been told a couple times that I sound somewhat English.

  • Why do we even take these kinds of quizzes? Wouldn't we rather know what nationality we mostly are or something? Sometimes I have a country accent, other times it's kinda Irish, but of course this stupid quiz doesn't account for that either! Whatever!

  • No! Stop! Don't read this, if you do you will lose your best friend in a car accident at 4:27 pm tomorrow night, your pet or sibling will get run over by the car that your friend was in the accident in, and you will be the cause of it all! Share this 12 times to reverse the curse! Hurry, you have 8 minutes before the curse is put into place! Go, while you have the chance!

  • You were absolutely correct. I was born and raised in Chicago as you detected. I have lived in various places but have now lived in RI for over 30 years but have resisted speaking with any other accent than my Chicago accent.

  • This is so cool! Although I live in Florida now, I spent my "young" years (0-5 when language forms) in Illinois, Indiana, & Kentucky so this quiz makes sense to me - I was rated "inland mid-west"

  • Your Result: The Midland 77%

    "You have a Midland accent" is just another way of saying "you don't have an accent." You probably are from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri) but then for all we know you could be from Florida or Charleston or one of those big southern cities like Atlanta or Dallas. You have a good voice for TV and radio.

    69% The Inland North
    67% The Northeast
    66% Philadelphia
    55% Boston
    55% The South
    54% The West
    35% North Central
    SOOOOOOO OOOOOO WRONG I LIVE IN CANADA!

  • My Result: The Inland North
    100% (SHOCKING CUZ IM FROM FLORIDA)

    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'm from California, so for me to have an accent of the midland states, makes me wonder how I'm pronouncing words. I do have a tendency to pick up accents where ever I'm at. I've never been to any of the midland states or even in the Northeeast states, and never been to GA or FL. So who knows.

  • I do not believe my accent is 100% New England. My accent has always registered as mid-American or Illinois or no accent. My husband is from New England and has that accent. I am from the Deep South and have never had an accent of any kind. If I had paid for this quiz I would want my money back.

  • Mom grew in New Hampshire, upstate (Saratoga Springs) NY, and Boston. Dad is rural no.Indiana. I lived in Houston for 5 years in the 1980's and unknowingly took on Texas pronunciations of some words. My quiz says I am Midlands.

  • I am struck by how many say the results fit their parents more than themselves. I too have spent as little time in Philadelphia as an average tourist, but both my parents were from there, and the quiz determined that my accent is as "Philadelphia as a cheesesteak"!

  • According to this quiz, I am inland north. The only problem is, I live in Louisiana and have never been above the 36th parallel. That said, are many people in Louisiana that have accents, and people always tell me that I am the one who speaks differently

  • completely and utterly wrong-o!

    I am from the Southwest, though I live in NYC.

    This test pegged me as inland north. Yet people in this part of the country typically cannot tell Western/Southwester n accents from the various Southern accents.

  • My report came back Midland yet I was born in Boston, lived in Massachusetts until I was 29 and live in NH. Strange; yet my kids sound like they were born and bred in Southie. Guess I can thank Mom for those elocution lessons.

  • WOW .... I am impressed ! It said I was "Philadelphia" all the way...I was born in Philadelphia and raised and still live at the"Recovering Sandy" Jersey Shore. I've always thought I had a knack for picking up that "Philadelphia" accent in others...didn't think I shared it!!
