A funny survey that tells what areas of the US that influence your accent/dialect

Survey


My dialect is influenced by NYC, Yonkers and Patterson/Newark

My results were closely related: NYC, Yonkers, and Jersey City.
Could we be cousins?

Spokane, Wichita and Salt Lake City...um, WHAT? I never lived near any of those places! But what the hell...I'm a military brat who joined the military...I unconciously add other languages to my conversation from time to time and don't realize it until some one points it out to me.

Spokane, Denver and Oklahoma City.

Currently live about an hour outside of Spokane. Also lived outside Denver for a few years. Never been to Oklahoma before though.

Grand Rapids, Rockford and Toledo. Which is pretty good since I'm from northern Ohio.

I gotta add that once you get a few brew-ha's in me, I have a southern accent that comes into play on top of it all. Even though I'm not technically from the south.

This is pretty darn accurate! Mine was Detroit, Grand Rapids, and Toledo. I am originally from Michigan, and lived in both of the cities I mentioned. Originally from Bay City, MI. But people in MI all sound the same. Unless you are a Yooper.

and where do you fall, geographically speaking? Just out of curiosity.

I am West Texas. About as West Texan as you can get. I am curious if there just wasn't enough numbers to push the data back into West Texas on this test?

Being of Canuck origin I was curious how this quiz would place me.
Quite accurate I must say, as I live on the East coast and it connected me to Boston.

Rockford I'll. , grand rapids, buffalo

That would seem fairly accurate since I'm from the south side of Chicago, although I'm not sure where the buffalo or grand rapids part came from, but Rockford Illinois is right on target

having spent time in Alexandria, LA a couple of years ago, and managing a team remotely, it seems that our vernacular is similar between there and here. I think the map skews towards that direction due to our much more sparse population not having enough weight to really come this way. In other words: i am attributed to the Texas/Arkansas border area because of a statistical trick.
