Second time around it hit on where I was born and that is just a 4 hour drive and a state line from where I live now so pretty good.
I did answer more to what gets said around me this time too which i am sure is how the test is designed. Really cool, gonna share this one

I think you would fit in up in northern cheeseland. We're forgiving folks around here. And our small down dialect consists of stringing multiple words together.

IE: "Are you going to go to the store?"

would be said as "Are you gongotahstore."

It flows nicely

So, an Aussie with Scottish (and Irish) heritage would really get the juices flowing then aye???

My head-office is in New Orleans so I talk to a lot of characters from those 2 areas and I must say, the accent is growing on me - especially the Louisiana folks.

I will be in New Orleans for a week on business next month actually - really looking forward to all this spicy food I keep hearing about.

Cheers Roo4u

Just finished taking the test, and it says the cities that most closely match my speech patterns are the Yonkers, N.Y.C and the Jersey City area. So is that why people here in Oklahoma look at me sideways when I say the words "Bastid" and "Cawffee" ? lol

Indeed.



My head-office is in Houston and another in New Orleans so I talk to a lot of characters from those 2 areas and I must say, the accent is growing on me - especially the Louisiana folks.

New Orleans is one of the places I have always wanted to go. Their accents tend to greatly from one person to another there. I have seen some on TV talk that did need subtitles it was so thick, while others have that french touch to it.

Enjoy your trip. Too bad it isn't time for Mardi Gras.
You could really get a taste of the life then.

I'm sorry. I really didn't even notice that until I posted it.

That may very well have something to do with it.
Gahhh! An outsider in our midst!!

Well, I'm not too sure where Northern Cheeseland is, but anything with Cheese gets my vote. I also like the idea of cutting out syllables and sentences when talking and just letting everything flow into one huge word.

I bet it works fantastically well for folks from the US. The test excludes all other possible locations however, so I found it to be accurate to within four thousand miles only

Perfect! "Reckon" would fit in here. Nobody would turn heads to "Waddaya" either Haha
Also, you would be kind of a celebrity status around here by default. It's a strange phenomenon that happens haha. We don't get like... any foreign people living around here... foreign as in those who are not european-descended caucasions (white) (hope that Isn't offensive, only meant for descriptive purposes)

So it would almost be like a fun game for the locals, in a nice way
Many would be curious about you

We do sometimes get this solo group of UK folks for about 1 week in the summer... But you only run into them rarely, and It's always when they go out for dinner and you happen to be at the same restaurant at the same time they are.

I saw one of the UK tourists open the car door for his lady after exiting the restaurant once.
I was like ARE YOU SERIOUS?! PEOPLE DO THAT?!!!

I was not only completely shocked, but jealous kind of Haha! and found it pretty interesting

Dead on. Got me with "blow off" and "access road". Weird.

Pretty accurate.
That is, if I used the words I grew up saying. Rather than things I've picked up since.
Pegged me to within 20 miles of the hospital of my birth...not bad!

Sorry again.
I didn't even think about that until after I posted it. By the time it was bought up my editing time limit was exceeded. I should have thought about it, but didn't. I am sorry for that.

I grew up in the UK, my accent and word usage aren't all that specific, though interested to see where my word usage fits with US accents / word usage.

Most of my answers didn't relate to any specific area of the US, as most of the questions feature words used commonly in certain US states.

Though a few of my answers matched for NY.
