http://www.gotoquiz.com/what_americ...ent_do_you_have

A friend of mine just introduced me to this web site. I found it quite interesting.

It askes you about a dozen questions or so, about how you pronounce words.

Even though I have lived on the East Coast for several years, New Hampsire, Maine, Connecticut, Rhode Island, etc... It was able to nail it right on the head. (I was born and raised in Wisconsin)
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."
Now I think thats funny. Because as I am in Wisconsin right now, people I meet immediately assume I am from out of town, and ask where I am from.

Give this a try, and tell me what you think.

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 need to be honest. Don't guess. Give the questions a little more thought and try again.

Mine came out the same as DJB78. The curious thing is I'm from a different inland north, Derby in England.

Don't guess? The questions aren't exactly difficult. The thing doesn't work.

"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'm from the south. Ha!

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

Still don't know if its an insult or a complement LOL

This was almost too close to be believed ...I'm from Miami, FL AND I worked in radio for several years. Very cool.
