|What American accent do you have? |
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.

Quiz Created on GoToQuiz
I popped in at Bold & Free today and found the above quiz. Jan scored a western accent and I was sure mine would be southern. You know, seeing as I'm from south of New Orleans originally, then I lived in Florida (alright already! I know Florida's not really the south) for eleven years. But Philly? What?!?
So what is your accent? Tell me! I want to put accents with your names and blogs!
Until I write again ...
I am apparently from the Midland. Sortof right. Tennessee is in the middle...By the way, I popped into your mother's site, and her work is UNBELIEVABLE! I am definitely having something(s) done!!
Mine is dead on, check out my blog!
The quiz said North Central but I am from Ohio. Hmmmm. It said that I probably get mistaken from someone from Canada. Fun quiz, though.
Whu? I came up Midland, which is essentially no accent. I've lived in none of the places it listed as possibilities except Pennsylvania... but I only lived there less than one year when I was 18 and I did not, nor do I, sound like anyone I remember from there! My accent must be Army Brat... little bits from all over.
I cracked up when it said I'd be good in radio or TV. Midland, no accent with SD. Yeah, that would fly.
Oh! and HEY!!!! When did you change everything?!?!?! Very nice Flea!
That was fun! It says I'm tied with The West and The Midland, and it goes on to say that means I have no accent. I grew up in the Midwest and now live in the West, so that's spot on. (Said with the best faux British accent I could muster.) ;)
Maybe... just what does a visit from Fred and Bessie entail? Cause, I watched an episode of Dirty Jobs last night and uh... I'm not up for cow pies and I'm not certain I could handle and birthing of babies.
I have an American Midland accent which is kinda funky cuz I'm Canadian. LOL
Midland. I am originally from Idaho. Born and raised. When I go back they say I sound s-l-o-w (not in the head btw) and southern. Which is totally bizarre since OK is not considered southern. Is it?
Apparently I am from the Midland also. Who knew?
Where is it? I would like to visit my people!
they don't really have an alaskan. canadian tab :(
Midland. It doesn't take into account that I have a drawl, though. Even after a quarter century in California, people still ask me where I'm from. I've sometimes wondered if losing the drawl would be worth an extra 10k on job offers. (Probably not. But dangly bits ... well, that's another matter entirely!)
Mine is Inland North and it's pretty true. I grew up in upstate NY, lived in Texas for a few years then settled in Massachusetts where they tell me I talk funny because I park my car instead of pahk my caw. Harumph!
Midland here with a heavy emphasis on west, then south. I guess that would be me. I grew up in NE OK, then lived in Central OK, then back to NE OK, and now in NW Missouri.
Hmmmm... Inland North? I am a Native Floridian and have never lived anywhere else. However, both my parents are from Inland North...but when we visited family they sound totally different than us.
I have a MidLand accent. However, I do warsh my clothes in the crick. I'll bet I have well over a 100,000 hours of talking before groups and other than my "Warshington" I have escaped ridicule. MUD
must be all those years in-around the DC area in your formative years. ;) actually, I have no idea when a person's formative years are....
and mine is Inland North:
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."
And it's true, I will say a word like sconce, Chicago, or coffee and that dang nasal aaahhh sound comes out of my mouth (although you should hear my mom say the word "bra"...haahahahahahaha!).
Every time I take ANY test, I come up in the middle!
Yep, Midland and I'm sittin here in NC! Of course, I lost my accent in Air Force, but I sure had a time of it when I first went in stationed in CA!! Oh gosh.....
Midland. You know, Arizona with Kentucky parents. The quiz didn't ask me about the word "him". According to my oldest who is so unbelievably annoyed by it, I say "heem". Where does that fall I wonder?
Midland~ no accent! I too have never lived in the places that it stated...grew up in California! It's funny that it said I would have a good radio voice...I sound like a chipmunk on speed!
