    I've never heard of "boughten" where I'm at.

    I suspected it could be a midwest thing, since the only people I've ever heard say it were from Ohio. I love having my suspicions confirmed.

    Hmm....I'm not sure if this is a indicator or any particular accent (I'm from D.C., move around the south, been to new england) but I have a particular problem with saying "writ" when I should have said "wrote"

    I'll say something like "I writ it yesterday" or "I've written it"

    Maybe it's just my poor grasp on grammar?
    Johari/Nohari wall! Thanks in advance for filling it out.

    No, that makes sense. There's a tendency for people to conjugate verbs based on other verbs that they sound like. I don't know what it's called in linguistics, but think of:

    bite (present) ---> bit (past)
    write (present) ---> writ (past)

    It's the actually the exact same thing as the bought/boughten thing I mentioned, which is analogous to got/gotten.

    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.
