  • North Inland-BINGO! I think a lot of people just don't "git" the questions. Kinda like when they're stopped by the sheriff and told "put yer hands up"

  • I am from England and do not have a regional accent but this quiz says that I sound like I'm from Philadelphia. Not true, I sound English.

  • Quiz said I was 87% Philadelphian. I have never been there. Was born, raised and lived in Louisiana and since have spent 40 years in Oklahoma. Go figure.

  • Wrong! Born and raised in Texas, and although I've lived away from home most of my adult life, I've always resided in the south!

  • I was born & raised in UT. & have lived primarily in UT & CO... How could I be mistaken for being from Florida or other Big Southern states??? :P

  • On does not rhyme with Don or dawn in my part of the South. It rhymes with own but that wasn't a choice. It would take a much longer test to really accomplish what this attempts to do.

  • SO far from correct! I am as Southern as anybody can get, born & raised in MS by MS mom & Al dad. Our family has been Southern as far back as any of them could be traced, which was VA in the late 1600's. PHILADELPHIA???? I've never even BEEN there!

  • You said I had a 97 percent NY Accent. Actually i am 100 percent Baltimore. I think there are substantial differences between the accents of my NYC cousins and mine.

  • I'm a Brit, and I'm placed as Rhode I or Conn, which I think is New England area, so that seems as near as it could get, really. I'd have been surprised had it said I was from TX, lol.

  • Pennsylvania is almost South Texas - except for the part about moving all over the country, including Pennsylvania, Kentucky, California, Alabama, Louisiana, New Jersey, and Michigan...

  • Quiz result was way off. I am a native Californian, and when I am out of state, people ask me if I am from Cal, but quiz rated me as "North Central". We are not impressed.

  • Lol, I got the Inland North. I grew up mostly in the south though. I've lived in the North for around 5 years.. but the south, I have been living for around 6 years. :P It's kinda obvious, it doesn't matter.

  • Not even close. I was born in South Carolina, grew up in Georgia, & moved back to South Carolina in 1999. But my result was...wait for it...Philadelphia. X-D

  • I knew it would tell me I had a Philadelphia accent -- and it was 100%, too. Born and raised, and will eat a cheese steak, scrapple, or turtle soup any time!

  • Yes, I'm from the northeast (upstate NY), but carbonated drinks were called "soda" or "soft drinks" in my day, not "pop", so you got that wrong.

  • North Central, though I'm from Oregon. A few people have thought I was Canadian, odd since Oregon speech is supposedly 90% the same as California.

  • now for the real comment:

    I got midland, which is totally not right. I'm from Charlotte, North Carolina, and I have a slight southern accent and say ya'll all the time.

  • Philadelphia accent? I don't think so. Your quiz results are inaccurate. I did spend 3 months in Philadelphia, and that was more than enough.

  • Philadelphia. I got, Philadelphia.

    I live an Asian country called Taiwan, and the farthest place I went is my mom's hometown in the Philippines.

    Go figure.

  • Your quiz got my accent so wrong! I was born in Ohio but never lived there past the age of 1 year. I have been in Fl since before turning 2 years old. My son got the same result and he has lived in Florida all of his life.

  • It says BOSTON for me. I have never been to or lived anywhere near the Boston area. I was born in Ohio and have lived in California for 67 years.
