Southern

People used to hate Southern accents but now everyone wants one.

What American accent do you have? (Best version so far)

My Results:



Midland

("Midland" is not necessarily the same thing as "Midwest") The default, lowest-common-denominator American accent that newscasters try to imitate. Since it's a neutral accent, just because you have a Midland accent doesn't mean you're from the Midland.


hahah i'm english

Heh. I'm Norwegian. (Look it up, it's in the map. Pretty far from the US.)

My accent was Northern...Chicago, etc. But I'm from Texas! Lived here all my life. Think this might be because my Dad is Indian? Hmmmm.

My Result:
Northern

You have a Northern accent. That could either be the Chicago/Detroit/Cleveland/Buffalo accent (easily recognizable) or the Western New England accent that news networks go for.

Interestingly I'm English and don't not have an American accent, but I am from the North of England.

Fair quiz but missing some important stuff, IMO. My husband and I had the same result but he's definitely got a different accent from mine. (I'm from western PA, he's from Eastern PA, but we both scored Midland). It would help to add things like, "Do you say words like couldn't, shouldn't or "wouldn't" with one syllable or two." True Midlands say two syllables, but "coal crackers" and others from eastern areas say it like "woont, coont, shoont." Other differences (and I've noticed this in many people from eastern PA): donkey (midlands) vs. dunkey (east); compass vs. cumpass, & the important Pop vs. Soda (pop is Midlands.) Also Pittsburgh & points south are included in Midlands on the test results but they have a VERY distinctive accent compared to areas north of Pgh...it's nearly impossible to write it down but it's real. They say "LAY-trobe" instead of "La-TROBE," for example and it's hard to distinguish "a's fro

above post continued because it cut me off:

Pittsburghers say their "A's and "Y's very similarly, e.g., Baron and Byron sound alike.

High marks though on the delineation between Great Lakes coastal areas up until East of Cleveland and then including Ashtabula OH (approx) and entire portion of PA along Lake Erie with MIdlands because Cleveland, Toledo, etc. definitely have an accent.

ON rhymes with neither LAWN nor with JOHN, and I have no idea what question 15 is trying to ask.

On rhymes with loan and Joan.

Northeastern

Most people don't know it but this is actually what dictionaries are based on. If you don't believe me, pick up any American dictionary and look up "source" and "sauce" and you'll see they are written with the same vowel pronunciation

I'm from England, and my accent is actually Gordie, Aye.

But i am from the north east of england though, so thats pretty weird =/

MIDWESTERN FOR ME

GOOD JOB!

Midland? nah. most people say I have a "Bawlmer" accent (which makes sense because I'm from Baltimore), except for that I don't say "warsh" for wash and "Warshington" for Washington. but other than that, I got the Baltimore accent (which, to you, is Philadelphia - they sound kinda similar but they're not the same, and I wouldn't lump them together). you need to do some more research on accents.

In the American Accents Quiz I got A Northern Accent from Cleveland Buffalo or Western New England. But I am not from America but from Dublin Ireland. I have a connection with England through my Family. I have never been to America,very interesting

In the american accents quizz it seems that i am from the South.
Quite good for me as i come from Scotland,UK and have never been stateside, just goes to show how much influence American English has

Most people have a very difficult time identifying where I come from by my accent. Midland is a perfect fit. I am a native Floridian and have a neutral accent. In a sense, Florida is the least southern of the southern states. The only word I have to watch myself on is "ruff" (like a dog) for roof for some reason.

Yay i actully got where i was from northern o yeah
12 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Saturday 6/16/07 - 9:29:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
Wow! That is a really good quiz! Good job!
12 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Saturday 6/16/07 - 9:42:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think it's strange to label the newscaster accent as being primarily a midlands accent, when it seems more logical to label it a West Coast accent. I mean, where else did the standard originate, if not from L.A.?

*** no surprise there - born in Kansas, lived there till I was 16 then last 25 years in CA, very cool tool

'Course it's a little strange that my mother (born in San Francisco, raised in Kansas) and my grandmother (born and raised in Kansas) both say "warsh" (wash) and "warshington" (washington) - but I never have. hummm, strange. My great grandparents were from Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky - is that where its from?
