Accent

Rather accurate quiz for me, I think.

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.

The West
The Inland North
The South
The Northeast
Philadelphia
Boston
North Central
What American accent do you have?

The problem is that they don't distinguish between deep South and Southwest accents. The deep South tends to add more syllables to words, ie in Texas we say "fan," but in the deep South they say "fayan." LOL.

Interesting. Even though I'm a born and bred Southern girl, I too rated a "Midland" score. Maybe it was the 6 years we lived in Minnesota!
