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.”

What American accent do you have?

Stolen from Ace by way of The Lesley.

  • I think maybe you’re untestable. Because you don’t talk like someone from Chicago or Wisconsin. Besides, people from those places are insane.

  • My score was the West, with The Midland (which would be???) and Boston scoring almost equal. I really don’t see how Boston is 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.

    Or Toronto?

    I also rated “Inland North”

  • Thank you, Lesley. I think everyone else has an accent, anyway.

    Snooze, you could be a news person!

    Zig, that’s cause you hide your true accent. 😀
