  • Northeast??? Interesting. I spent a lot of my summers in Fairfield Beach, CT, where my paternal grandparents had a summer house on the beach. But,I was born on the Panhandle of Texas, raised all over the US and part of the world as an Army Brat. My friends tell me I have a Southern accent with a slight North Carolina twist to it. All in all, your quiz would never come close!

  • 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."

    Omg, you are SO right! I call every carbonated drink pop, why wouldn't I? And I live in Michigan. AKA "The Great Lakes State" 10/10

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

    "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.

    I think I have a good voice too. Aweshome quiz, though ;)

  • "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 like Dallas or Atlanta."

    Wow... I'm from South Central Pa...not the west...I don't think my accent was a choice in the quiz lol. The thing is, I have a hearing loss, so it was hard to figure out many of the words in the quiz haha. But nice try anyway! :)

  • most of the comments on here help me understand why so many nations hate americans. wheather redneck, northern, southern, yuppie, stuck on stupid or stuck on smart(every bit as dangerous as stuck on stupid,a good example is try to convince a group of smart people of this, stuck on smar theory) or otherwise, a majority of these comments show how retarted peoples thought process is. Lighten up and brighten up. THIS COMMENT IS TO ENLIGHTEN THE IDIOTS(IF THATS POSSIBLE, ABOUT 11% WILL WILL GET IT) and make the rest say hmmm yeah. That being said, I find this quiz accurate(as a Chicagoian)without any other factors like 'my mom is from here' or 'my dad was stationed in a gay bar during Nam'or 'I'm a moron and can"t see it from where I am sitting', etc., etc. I scored 100% inland north and I say soda despite I said pop as a child, becauce it is propper

  • Midland. I've always wondered what accent I have, and I could never figure it out. I live in Fall River, Massachusetts. Around here we call what people in America know as the 'Boston accent' the 'Fall River accent' (Fall River is very close to Rhode Island, so we connect more with Providence than Boston). However, I never caught the 'Fall River accent' like most of my friends.

    I loved the quiz, though. Very well constructed. The best on this site, I'd say.

  • Amusing but inaccurate. "INLAND NORTH" is interesting since most people think I am from England upon first meeting. My mother (born and raised in upstate New York) was always mistaken for a native of Ohio. I do not refer to carbonated drinks as "POP", I call them "SODA".

    When I tried to rate this with 4 stars it thanked me for giving it 8 stars!! What a joke.

    LOL I'm from Wyoming, but I did grow up in Germenay, Arazona, and Oklahoma, so whatever.

  • Philadelphia and Boston. Exactly on the mark, although I left the East Coast for California some 48 years ago at age fourteen. I had thought my accents were long gone, but they're obviously still there. All this time I thought I was speaking standard American "anchorman" English! But, hey - do marry, Mary, and merry sound the same to you?

  • Martin, you are from England and your closest U.S. accent was from the northeast. Thats because this country was settled there and the language is the least diluted. In particular the upper mid-atlantic and the nyc, connecticut and new jersey area have residents that are mostly still big users of consonants.

    Of course there are many accents in England but as in the US clarity is more necessary when the population is large and diverse.

    Oh I'm not even American, ha. Good quiz though. :-)

  • This quiz totally failed to identify an accent for me, and even the questions did not always fit my pronunciation. I'm from the Midwest but have lived in New England for 50 years. The quiz gave me a Philadephia accent. There is just no way that comes anywhere close. Maybe it's because I live in Rhode Island, and the quiz makers have never heard Rhode Islanders speak.

  • Didn't work for me. I'm from Florida, born and raised. Overall, no accent except for a few words like Y'all. Too many seasonal residents and transplanted residents have smoothed out our accent to be almost imperceptable. So we generally don't have a Southern Accent unless we are hicks from the rural areas of the states.

  • I'm from Southern Connecticut and I find it hard to believe that I sound like I'm from Philadelphia or from Wisconsin or Chicago. The question regarding "Mary", "merry" and "marry" was ambiguous to me because I think that "Mary" and "marry" sound alike - not "Mary" and "merry".

    Anyway, this was fun, but I would like to take some more quizzes like this to see if my "accent" could really be pinpointed.

  • I live in Minnesota now but I am from NY originally, which the test results for did accurately pick up on. (and a lot of people here do say pop instead of soda). And to the person who said "asking how pin and pen sound in conversation has nothing to do with my accent", they are not really asking how it sounds to you when someone else says it, just say it out loud yourself and see if it sounds the same or different.

  • This was hysterical. The test told me I had an "Inland North" accent, that I was asked if I came from Wisc or Chicago, and called carbonated beverages "pop". I was born & raised in Chicago, and yes, I called carbonated beverages "pop". LOL!!! When I moved to OH, I was often asked if I had come from Michigan - as I had a "Midwestern accent".

    Exactly right!

  • It said that I have a Midland accent, but I'm from upstate New York, so I think a Northeastern accent would make more sense. By the way, a New York City accent varries greatly between the buroughs. When people not from the area think "New York City accent" they think of the Brooklyn accent. Manhattan actually doesn't have an "accent", par-say. It's just like the Midland accent that you describe- the typical American accent that people think of not even having an accent. Great quiz though
