    What American accent do you have?
    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."

    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.

    Result Breakdown:
    87% Philadelphia
    80% The Midland
    76% The Northeast
    62% The South
    56% Boston
    56% The Inland North
    33% The West
    15% North Central

    Ok, I had to YouTube Philly accent. I don't know, I really can't tell.

    West & Midland seem to both be nearly identical, neutral accents. Although West seems to have some subtle differences that are kind of hard to pick out when you're actually listening to someone talk (hence the "no one thinks you have an accent unless you're a SoCal surfer"), for example I pronounce "stock" and "stalk" the same, but I get Midland if I say different on the quiz.

    Not much point in taking the quiz if you're not even American, is there? /jk

    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.

    Your Result: The Northeast


    Judging by how you talk you are probably from north Jersey, New York City, Connecticut or Rhode Island. Chances are, if you are from New York City (and not those other places) people would probably be able to tell if they actually heard you speak.


    I'm Australian... I'm Chinese.. How do I have an accent?

    When I met my in-laws and they kept asking for a "pop" it would crack me up. I mean, I grew up in Texas in the 70-80s and a pop there meant you'd like someone to smack you in the mouth.

    I don't know if people in TX use pop for soda now or not. It's been years since Texas.

    Whenever I hear anyone say "pop", I feel like I'm in the 1950s in the corner soda fountain. It just feels so anachronistic. But apparently it's the word used in a good part of the country.
