No surprise here.


That's a Southern accent you've got there. You may love it, you may hate it, you may swear you don't have it, but whatever the case, we can hear it.

Yes, that unavoidable southern accent! When I was on the East Coast, everyone wanted to know what part of Tennessee I was from. My response was, 'I don't sound like Loretta Lynn!

I am from Maryland, lived in Pennsylvania, Florida, and now currently I reside in Texas.

So go figure. I know one thing I don't call soda "Pop"!!

"You have a Midland accent" is just another way of saying "you don't have an accent." You probably are from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri) but then for all we know you could be from Florida or Charleston or one of those big southern cities like Atlanta or Dallas. You have a good voice for TV and radio.


Ack-tually, it's 30 years pacific northwest english mingled with punjabi enculturation, and canadian californian nevadan oregonian idahoian southwestern actualization; after post russian polish french spainish british danish, and a rage full of travells therein, but OoOoKaaaay. Spot on !

Though, I've been to those midwestern places. May Bee they stuck :-)

I like tests. This was fun. Thanks op!

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.The Midland Boston North Central The Inland North The Northeast Philadelphia The South What American accent do you have?Quiz Created on GoToQuiz

Wow, I would have thought it would have pegged me for Redneck.... SoCal surfer? That I am not DUDE... heh.

How do we know that test isn't just looking up your IP address? I'm suspicious.

My result was 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.


I may be mistaken as a Canadian? Well, I am Canadian.

Says I'm from the west (which is spot on, 619 represent!!!)

But it also says I could also be from Florida...which is where I live...so it all works out!
