I am a typical Yankee


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.

So, the results of that dismay me...however true it might be. My accent has been heavily influenced by the couple years I've spent out of the country, and also by the international and country-wide setting in which I went to high school and college.
However, they didn't ask me how I say "room" (I pretty much say it like "rum").


  1. So, for some reason, the values are not displaying. I'm about 80% for the midlands, and only half for the NorthEast...those were the significant values.

  2. I have to say that the person who wrote this has never been to the Midwest. People in Missouri and souther Illinois do not talk like people from Ohio or Indiana.

  3. I thought something like that. 'Course, people in Maine talk nothing like people from Boston and New Hampshire, but I guess it's all in the ear of the listener. I think it's a pretty bad quiz.
