    I am from Ukraine

    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."
    To see a world in a grain of sand,
    And a heaven in a wild flower,
    Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
    And eternity in an hour

    I have a Midland accent, which is accurate.

    It's really hard for me to imagine cot/caught and merry/Mary/marry sounding differently.

    1) The EU is not a country
    2) NAFTA has a bigger economy.

    I got Midland.

    I'm Southern US, so " cot" is "cahhht" and "caught" is " cawttt". Merry/Mary/marry all come out " Mair ree".

    Our accent is heavily influenced by the English and Scottish settlers in the 15th century.

    I got inland north which is a part of the country I've never been to. According to others, my accent sounds very indistinct or it sounds slightly like the opposite of what they are. For example: Southern people think I'm from the north (I'm from D.C.) and people from the north/new england think I'm from the south (pretty much, just not the north)
    Johari/Nohari wall! Thanks in advance for filling it out.

    I'm from Brooklyn, NY
    I don't really have a typically Brooklyn accent, but when I'm caught up in a moment, saying "dog" or "coffee" will undoubtedly reveal my hometown

    The o's have more of an "aw" sound

    Kind of like Franny Drescher on " The Nanny"? She's so adorable, and my brain can't comprehend someone instinctively talking that way. lol Of course, when I visited family out in the Utah desert, they would make me say something, and then they would laugh and laugh, and swear I had the funniest accent they'd ever heard. :P

    I've never heard you or your sister. Would you say you are more southern twang, or southern drawl?

    Good question!

    Well, I would say more of a drawl. (?) We try to enunciate, but it's tough to know what words are affected by the accent overall. Silently Honest has spoken to Domino - perhaps he can give an opinion.
