what is your accent?
Results: What American accent do you have?
I'm labeled as from the Midlands.
""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."
Missouri is close as my parts of father's family are from there, but I only spent a few days there when I was young. I would say that this test is "flahhhed".
if I had answered no to #12, think the test would say I'm Jim Fox?
BTW I'm inland north... which is funny because I did go to school in Chicago but the south was really high as well which reflects a few years living there. I bust into some weird accents.
forgot to add that I've lived in SoCal all my life, with the exception of spending a summer in upstate NY in the mid 90's, as well as visiting Nebraska every year for a while. that may explain it.
Midland...but I never left SoCal/Las Vegas...
I also got Midland, and I'm a native Angeleno who's never lived anywhere else.
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.
Yup, born and raised in Los Angeles. Spent a few years in San Diego in college...
My family is originally from Missouri too, so yes I have a midlands accent...with a dose of Hawaiian pidgen-english when I go back to visit the islands.
The most noticeable example of the accent if how I pronounce Four. It comes out of my mouth more like "Far".
Midland. Funny because I was raised by a father with a thick Boston accent and a mother with whatever that Western Mass accent is (Springfield area). Having grown up half in Maryland and half in New England, and having moved to SoCal right after school must have Midlanded me.
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."
Guess that makes sense since I was born in Milwaukee and lived there until I was almost 11.
