What American Accent do you Have?

Posted by BenSpark on December 5, 2006

I took this quiz and it looks like my accent is the Inland North. When I go all over the country and give demonstrations I am always asked, “Where is your Boston Accent?” I tell them I do not live in Boston and therefore can say my R’s. Sometimes it is just easier to tell someone you are from Boston because all over the country people identify with Boston instead of saying that you are from Massachusetts. I tend to say I am from Massachusetts right outside of Rhode Island and that is why I do not have a Boston accent. Take the quiz and let me know what accent you were.

Your Result: The 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.”

Allison just took the quiz and has a Midland Accent

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.
