    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...
