  • I got a Mid-Atlantic Accent, they were right I have lived in Philly for my whole life.

  • I must have answered the questions wrong, I have a pretty obvious Southern accent but I got western, Southern was way at the bottom..

  • I got North-Central, which is funny because whenever I visit Minnesota, I think everyone there sounds funny. However, I do agree that I sound somewhat Canadian: I'm from Montana, and we seem to sound a lot like Albertans from my experience.

  • It said I have a Northern accent, which isn't too bad seeing as I grew up in CT, just above the NYC inflection and a bit below the atrocious Mass accent. I ran a test using the answers that should have generated a result for a Maine accent (which is about as atrocious as Mass and RI), but it ended up being North Central. Not really too accurate, as far as the ear is concerned.

  • I got scored a Boston accent; however, I am from Southern California. I have never been to New England and have never lived anywhere else in the United States. I find it a bit odd. I suspect that the reason that the test gives me this result is because of the way I pronounce "horrible".

  • I ended up with Mid-Atlantic, which makes sense for me! This quiz did seem to work better than the last one, which gave me Mid-west, given that my husband is Mid-west and frequently makes fun of me for my accent... and no way do I say "pop."

    If I can make one suggestion for any future versions of the quiz... there are some of us who pronounce "on" differently than "Dawn" *or* "Don" and do not pronounce "Dawn" and "Don" the same. So maybe a fourth choice on that question, where "on" is unique from the other two?

  • I'm from Michigan, but I got the Midland accent as my answer. Which is funny to me since when I travel to the Midland, they sound semi-southern to me. People from other parts of the country think I sound like I'm Canadian. I think I sound like I'm from Michigan, but I have a little bit less Chicago/Detroit "urban" accent and more of a rural Michigan accent (without it being a "yooper" accent, however).

  • The results on this one were more accurate than the last quiz on American accents. This time I got pegged with a northern accent (Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland, or Buffalo). OK, I can live with that.

    The writer's previous quiz pegged me with a Wiconsin accent. What?? I NEVER referred to soda as "pop"! That just sounds wrong! By the way, if you do go to Wisonsin, they pretty much have their own language. I went there in 2002, and I was thirsty so I asked someone "Where's the fountain?" They looked at me funny and told me it was downtown.

  • somehow my results were Midland like Pennsylvania (I'm travelling to Pennsylvania on January so i'll see ;) ), Southern Ohio,Southern Illinois,Southern Indiana,Southern Missouri. or I also could be confounded with a Florida accent

  • My results were Mid-Atlantic. However, I've lived in both Maryland and Delaware, giving me a mix of Philly and Tidewater, so my accent depends on where I am. If I go to New York, I have a Southern accent, but if I'm in Virginia or further south, people will think I'm from Philly or Jersey. If I'm neither of those, I'm Australian or Canadian. Then add a Turkish accent that comes out when I'm excited, and I'm more of a vocal mutt.

  • Born and raised New York City (East Harlem), mother from Hell's Kitchen/San Juan, father lived in Tennessee (Tri-City area). And somehow I have a Minnesota accent. ?!

  • I'm from South Carolina and all of my friends say that i have a true southern accent. But I can never hear it. And according to this quiz i have a southern accent

  • My results were North Central. I have been through that area by train only and have never set foot on that area. I'm a native of Washington State, where I still live. I have lived about 20 miles south of Canada for the past 25 years.

  • Interesting! I'm from central Europe with little knowledge about the diferencies in American accents. But I waas curious and the outcome seems reasonable: Northeastern
