I Took the American Accent Quiz

See what accent you have... http://www.gotoquiz.com/what_american_accent_do_you_have 64 People

    Hmmmm

    Judging by how you talk you are probably from north Jersey, New York City, Connecticut or Rhode Island. Chances are, if you are from New York City (and not those other places) people would probably be able to tell if they actually heard you speak.Not bad for a Scottish Lass
