What American accent do you have?
See, I told people I don't have a Southern accent.
Code doesn't work; I just screencap'd it. Just quote the summary it gives you.
Sounds about right.
Bahhhhston? from the Nawth End ?
I grew up in MA but the test pegged me as the Northeast and probably northern NJ
Funny when my wife and I honeymooned in MT we were thought to be New Yawkahs. But i forgave them because I heart MT
I couldn't get the code to work for some reason.
Being born in So Cal I used to speak like yer' typical surfer dude. But now that I'm older I speak with a drawl. People are surprised when I tell em' where I was born. In fact one gentleman said he figured I was from Virginia. A few examples of my dialect:
Oil = Ole
I = Ah
Figure = Figger
Help = Hep
And so on.
The funny thing is I was posting out my ass at work and couldn't take the test because it was blocked an just assumed that's what would come up.
I just took the test and here is my result:
"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.
I guess those years away in the Air Force smoothed out my accent.
cheer up, i'll buy you a tonic at the spa.
Separate names with a comma.
