What American accent do you have?

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.

North Central

The Midland


The South

The Inland North


The Northeast

What American accent do you have?
Quiz Created on GoToQuiz

Another online quiz to test your American accent. This one is short and seems pretty accurate. Catholicgauze has spent most of my life near the border of the Midwest (North Central) and the Old West. Meanwhile, I do have difficulty sometimes understanding a coworker from Brooklyn.

For a future post I will see if I can find some foreign English accent quizzes. Do I sound more like someone from Sydney or Perth? Time may tell.

I'm from Midland, followed by West, South, and Inland North.

I'm furthest away from North Central, apparently.

Great link. The quiz correctly caught (pronounced "cot") my Boston accent. Thanks.

It said that I was: Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri). I was also pretty close to being from the South too. Moving around coupled with academia has made me develop an accent that is pretty ambiguous.

The West. Which is odd given I'm very much from the north east.
