Mine was "Midland"

If I flee, kill me

If I die, avenge me

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."


Nice

Midland as well...the quiz was not thorough enough to break down my Western PA/Pittsburgh "yinzer" accent, or the associated dialect.

"Midland".   In reality, I've got the "stoner" accent.

If you define cowardice as running away at the first sign of danger, screaming and tripping and begging for mercy, then yes, Mr. Brave man, I guess I'm a coward.

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: 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.


This thing is good. I'm from Atlanta.

I don't get mistaken for a canadian cause I am one. Therefore...
