According to the test, I'm North Central. Don't know about that now...lolol...I've been told that I have somewhat of an Irish lilt to my voice. What the 'who and the hey'. We're all Heinze 57's to some degree eh?

This is a 'reading/comprehension' thingy (don't worry it's just a few simple questions) and determines how YOU perceive words. "How does the word sound to you?"

Are you ready?

TAKE THE QUIZ!

Mine:

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: North Central

"North Central" is what professional linguists call the Minnesota accent. If you saw "Fargo" you probably didn't think the characters sounded very out of the ordinary. Outsiders probably mistake you for a Canadian a lot.

Well, what d'ya know, I have no American accent (or 'The Midland') according to the quiz. It says my voice is good enough for TV and radio.

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.

What a lot of crap. I'm English. I speak the Queen's version of said language!

Actually I get asked if I'm an Aussie quite a lot and after a few drinks I'm souff London.

S'all gravy mate.

You're from England? The test probably doesn't take into account foreign accents.

Here's mine:

What American accent do you have?
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 Dallas or Atlanta.

1) The Midland 2) Boston 3) North Central 4) The South 5) The Inland North 6) Philadelphia 7) The Northeast

It says I have a midland accent (midwest) which means I have no accent at all according to the quiz. This is totally wrong because I am from Minnesota and I'm sure you've all seen the movie Fargo. It's a bit exaggerated but it's true...we do have an accent. I used to work in a call center and I was told by customers all over the country that they could tell I was from Minnesota.

Cool quiz!
Mine is midland, followed closely by the west. Makes sense I guess... I lived half my life in California and half in Missouri.

I love accents, it represents cultures also. Sometimes it actually makes people uncomfortable. But accents and languages are beautiful. I never thought about having an accent since the way I speak is the norm in my area.

Funny thing about this quiz is that it was created by some dude named "Xavier Kun."

I wonder what kind of accent he has. lol

Mine was midwest, but, if you heard me, you would KNOW I was from the South.
Born near Atlanta.

Lots of Midlands here. Count me in.

I was thinking the same thing.

Midland accent here. Fun quiz, When I lived in Seattle I did begin to detect a slight southern drawl, but nothing compared to really what I hear from other Southerners.

So I have a voice for radio or tv, I'm ready for the spotlight.

No wonder I can't get a conversation going with my fellow Okie neighbors-I apparently have a midland accent/no accent/sound like I'm from Boston accent.

Yep. That's pretty gol'darned funny.

Indland North

This is odd, I have only lived here three years and now I sound like them.


I wish I could have kept my very neutral accent.
Absolutely fun thread.
