    The Accent That Really Isn'T

    I'm from the Midwest. Our voices are flat and middle-of-the-highway flat, like the plains and prairies. If you can't picture that, tune in almost any sitcom or drama series from the 6O's or 7O's. The accent is in almost any of these; for some unknown reason, the producers think...

    Midwest

    I'm from the very middle of Minnesota so I have a neutral, and easy to understand accent. In fact I have the easiest accent for foreigners to understand. Most states like MN, WI, MI, IO, and some other states in the Midwest, have similar accents. I wish I had a southern accent...

    Yep

    Southern. Love it or hate it, your accent says you're probably from somewhere south of the Ohio River. "love it or hate it"?  who wrote this, some damned yankee? :D~~  hail far, ah luv it!

    Your Result: The Northeast

    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.   Considering I don't...

    Your Result: The West 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...

    Hmm Needs Improvement

      This quiz hit it on the head that I had a Midland accent but unfortunately I think that it lacks somewhat with the uniqueness of each accent. The most interesting thing that I find about the different accents is not the twang, the lack of accent or even the...

    I'm not American or even a native English speaker to have a specific accent, I'd say my accent is a mix and wouldn't sound like a native speaker, but yeah I'm more influenced by the American English than the British or others. You Speak General American English! 60% General...

    I Never Knew I Had One

    I was born in Baltimore and I never really realized that I had an accent until my old friend's boyfriend asked me what I did in art class. I told him that I draw. Apparently I pronounce draw as drawl. He knew right away that I was from Baltimore.
