What American accent do you have?
Created by Xavier on Memegen.net

Midland. The Midland (please don't confuse with "Midwest") itself is the neutral zone between the North and South. But just because you have a Midland accent doesn't mean you're from there. Since it is considered a neutral, default, "non-regional" accent you could easily be from someplace without its own accent, like Florida, or a big city in the South like Dallas, Houston, or Atlanta.

Take this quiz now - it's easy!
We're going to start with "cot" and "caught." When you say those words do they sound the same or different?






Spot-on.

"New York City. You are most definitely from New York City. Not New Jersey, not Connecticut. If you are from Jersey then you can probably get into New York City in 10 minutes or less."

I grew up within 10 miles of where you did, and my 'accent' was "South of the Ohio River". If it had said "South of Hwy 40" perhaps I would've agreed.

The only quibble I had was the "which word does the vowel in 'roof' sound like, 'food' or 'foot'?" I honestly use both. But yeah, it gave me the answer I expected. Nifty little program.

It got mine right, too.
I love filling out that kind of questionnaire.
I like the "what do you call it" kinds, too -- you know, the whole lightning bug/firefly; soda/pop/tonic; faucet/tap/spigot stuff.
