  • One of the questions didn't have an answer that was correct for me. The one with "Mary", "merry", and "marry" gives the option for all 3 the same, all 3 different, or the first 2 the same, but I would pronounce #1 and #3 the same, and not #2.

  • According to the quiz I am 100% from Philadelphia, 88% from the northeast. Well, I am 100% from NYC. But my mother was from Philsdelphia, if that makes any difference. Maybe you should ask where parents are from?

  • The quiz was right on. It said I was from Philadelphia 100% and I was brought up on the Jersey Shore about 50 miles from Philadelphia. My mother was born in Philadelphia and lived there as a child.

  • It said I was from Philadelphia even though it did not include the word "wooder" otherwise known as water to the rest of the US. Those from Erie, PA say "fire" like it is " fie yer." Yet, they made fun of me for saying :wooder." Ha.

  • I'm from Minnesota and the quiz was right on, saying I'm from the Midland North. We don't have accents there but everyone in Florida tells me that I do. So this quiz helps to explain it! Very good and fun to take.

  • I worked REALLY hard to lose any Chicago accent, especially when I moved to the South and CA. So my final response was right on. I am accent-neutral and I mean to stay that way!

  • Hum, I thought I DID speak straight out of the Dictionary, considering how that's a nick-name of mine. And considering the way people speak from where I live, it isn't an accent at all.

  • What American accent do you have?
    Your Result: The South

    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.

    100% correct!!! I'm from Louisiana! =}

  • Wow that's accurate! Man, I got midland, like Pennsylvania, and that is totally right! That's where I'm from! It's good to know I don't have an accent, I always think accents are funny.

  • I'm a 5th generation Texan, grew up in El Paso, Houston, & Los Angeles. Currently, I live in the DC area. This says I speak with a Boston accent. Hmm. I went there once in my late 20's...

  • I think I got more a ny accent, since I live close to NY...I'm from CT....and my accent is different from my mom's. I think it's a little ny accent, because I've been visiting my dad's side of the family there since I was young I think. Sounds NY more than Chicago or Inland or whatever.... >.>

  • Some used to say that folks born and bred in Northeastern Ohio speak the clearest version of American English. Didn't it used to be the standard for radio announcers?

  • Question #8, regarding the pronunciation of Mary, merry, & Marry, does not offer the "correct" answer, that Mary and marry are pronounced the same.

  • Quiz was fun, but I am certainly not from Inland North! I have lived my whole life in the Northeast up until 5 years ago. A soda is a soda and never a pop. And no one has ever thought I was from Chicago. Sorry.

  • I took the quiz and it was so off-base it's silly. I was born and raised in Miami, FL. Although I spent 25 years in the USAF I only lived in the North for 3 years and whatever accent I have is not from Minnesota.

  • Born and raised in New Jersey. Lived one year in Ontario, Canada, 10 years in the Chicago area - where the quiz said I was from - and 28 years in Wyoming. Don't ever call soda "pop" - it's soda!!

  • I'm as Cajun as Cajun comes - born and reared in New Iberia, La, but this quiz says I'm as Philadelphia as Philadelphia comes. Maybe the quiz people need to add in more regional accents.

  • Okay,born in California, lived there and in Nevada for 16 years, lived longer than that in Georgia, 5+ years in Virginia, many years in Tennessee and I have Boston accent! Interesting.

  • actually it was wrong it was a quiz with great questions but the results can't be true all the time. People's accents don't really depend on these questions...it depends on their accent. And, BTW...I say "soda" not "pop" i say some words different, some same...but who cares...i have the accent i have, not what you have to say!

  • Interesting! However, carbonated beverages are 'soda'; I've never lived west of Syracuse, NY, and I can only wonder how YOU actually hear the sounds we're being tested on!

  • I got inland North..but no one thinks I have a Chicago or Wisconsin accent. The thing is I'm from Central New York..in Syracuse. We pretty much speak normal English and lack a stand-out accent.

  • Well I don't know what to say really, they say I have a Midland accent in other words no accent; however, I do have an accent, I was born in Colombia S.A and I'd been in USA for over 34 years.
