the_blade, you aren't supposed to copy the html. You just have to copy the text on the results page.

What American accent do you have?
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.

The Inland North
 
Philadelphia
 
The South
 
The Midland
 
Boston
 
North Central
 
The West

You definitely have a Boston accent, even if you think you don't. Of course, that doesn't mean you are from the Boston area, you may also be from New Hampshire or Maine.

Definetely is correct, I live 40 minutes away from Boston. When I travel people always comment on my Boston accent. Luckily I never developed the really thick obnoxious accent. I lived in California for 9 years so I never developed the full on thick accent, but you can still notice it immediately.

"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.





That is good, radio is a hobby of mine.

People who I have Skyped and Teamspeaked with from chat say I don't have an accent, and sound quite a lot like Kevin Smith.

Midland.

Reading the explanation, yeah, definitely right. Course, people from Ohio don't really have an accent, but I guess you can name anything...

Edit: Gotta say though, thinking about how I talk. I have a lot of southern/hickspeak interspersed in my speech. It seems to be gettin worse and more prevalent too.....I think I've been hangin out with my girl's family too much...

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.

Philadelphia
 
The Northeast
 

FAIL. CA, which would have been it's next guess though, so I guess it's not that far off.

"North Central" is what professional linguists call the Minnesota accent. If you saw "Fargo" you probably didn't think the characters sounded very out of the ordinary. Outsiders probably mistake you for a Canadian a lot.





Funny thing is I am actually a Canadian.

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."

It said I was mostly southern, but still classified me as midland.

I just came back from Alabama, where there was some HUGE accents. I'm from Houston, Texas, where there's a majority no accent. When I came back, I picked up a small "redneck" accent. Over there, I was yelled at for talking like a "yankee," but down here, they say I sound like a hick! Gah!!!

I didn't have an accent before I moved here, but now that I do I get comments on it all of the time. And someone that doesn't have an accent sticks out like a sore thumb around here.

BTW, what part of Alabama?

In some words I do and some words I don't. Its not too thick of an accent. I kind of pronounce them, I don't have a full on Boston accent. But its definetely there. I don't mind it, West coast girls absolutely love it.

Oh. Whoops. Sorry, it's late and I'm not thinking. Plus, I'm Texan! Just look at what comes out of this state*! My dad is the Bama freak. He's got a shrine dedicated to it. Plus, my grandparents live there.

*See "Bush, George Walker"
