Which American accent/dialect do you have?

Have you ever wondered what type of accent you have? Until now you probably thought that accents were something only someone from New York or Georgia had, but don't be mistaken, our country is chock full of linguistic differences.

My quiz has ten different outcomes that encompass almost every corner of the lower 48 states. These include New England, New York, Mid Atlantic, Coastal Southeast, Central Southern, Great Lakes, Upper Midwest, Great Plains, Western, and Midland.
