    What American accent do you have?
    Your Result: The South
     

    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.

    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.

    You definitely have a Boston accent, even if you think you don't. Of course, that doesn't mean you are from the Boston area, you may also be from New Hampshire or Maine.

    Wow that's amazing. I really don't think I have a Boston accent even though I live there. Guess I was wrong...

    Also I was raised in Colorado, and #2 was The West for me. hmm

    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.

    You may think you speak "Standard English straight out of the dictionary" but when you step away from the Great Lakes you get asked annoying questions like "Are you from Wisconsin?" or "Are you from Chicago?" Chances are you call carbonated drinks "pop."

    The nearest for us across the pond....and not surprising on the basis that I consider myself British not English!!!!icon_biggrin.gif

    You are 55% English.
     

    Getting there. You may wish to pay attention to the world around you.

    "And did those feet
    In ancient times,
    Walk upon England's mountains green?
    And was the holy Lamb of God
    In England's pleasant pastures seen?"

    Well, no, but it's a cracking good tune.

    How English are you?

    What American accent do you have?
    Your Result: The Midland
     

    "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.

    I've taken the quiz twice and the same result both days--although I can say that my MN accent is not as pronounced after having lived in AZ for 20 years but put me around another mid-westerner and I will be outed-

    Your Result: Philadelphia
     

    Your accent is as Philadelphian as a cheesesteak! If you're not from Philadelphia, then you're from someplace near there like south Jersey, Baltimore, or Wilmington. if you've ever journeyed to some far off place where people don't know that Philly has an accent, someone may have thought you talked a little weird even though they didn't have a clue what accent it was they heard.

    contrary to what most hollywood voice/dialog coaches seem to believe; there is more than one "southern" accent. these dialog coaches seem to think that anyone below the mason-dixon line talks slow, slurring their consonants and in general have their mouth full of kayro syrup. icon_rolleyes.gif

    here in new orleans alone there is at least 4 different dominant "southern" accents. icon_cool.gif

    Sounds right. I grew up in West Virginia. People tend to be surprised that I have no accent. My mother had an accent, as does my brother. My sister and I don't, and my father did not. But, we all lived in the same house. My sister and I have the highest levels of education. Maybe that makes a difference.
