What American Accent Do You Have?

My friend, Tonni, did this on her blog and they nailed her! So, I thought I'd try it and sure enough...they got me too. Try it yourself but if you do, make sure you leave me a comment and tell me if they've got you pegged and what label they gave you!

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.

The Midland
North Central
The South

I took it. Yes, I, "least likely to take a quiz" did.Came out Midland or a large southern city. Must be all those years teaching phonics.

Yep, it got me. "Inland North" (where I was born and lived until I was six years old). I think there's a linguistics dissertation somewhere in this story -- that someone can move across the continent, maturing and living in "The West" for many decades, and *still* be identified as an "Inland Northerner"....
