What American accent do you have?

Your Result: The Midland
 

“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.

What American accent do you have?
Quiz Created on GoToQuiz

Well, this is a hoot.  I guess it’s kind of accurate, because my accent comes and goes … sometimes it’s much stronger than others.  It could be that I got a “squirrelly” result, too, because in my most humble opinion a Texas accent is all its own.  I’m amused by the TV/radio comment.  When I was a freshman and sophomore in college, I delivered the news on our college radio station.  My air name was “Nicki Rush.”  LOL  I thought it was much more intriguing than the gal who came on before me … her name was Kelly Green.  Yawn …

Well, got to get back to work.  I’ve been trying to clean out the mess that is my study/office/craft place.  It’s more office than anything.  I tacked on “craft” simply because it’s where I store my scrapbooking stuff for the time being.  When I want to work on stuff, I have to drag everything out to the dining table, or set up a table in the living room.  Someday I will figure out how to get 2500 square feet worth of use out of this 1800 square foot house.

  1. I just did that quiz and mine came out as Boston/New Hampshire accent!!  Not bad since I lived there 8 years, but my accent is very definitely Scottish though, it does get a little stronger when I go home or have a glass or two of wine!!

  2. I don’t know how accurate this is, but I got the same results that you did.  And you are right about a Texas accent being all its own.  I can immediately identify (well, most of the time) if someone is from the Southeast versus Texas.

  3. It pegged me 100%.  However, I do speak “Dictionary-English!”    And it is too “Pop!”

    “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.'”

  4. My son had to copyright all his photos on flicker because if you don’t have them marked they are free for anyone to take.  I guess there is a family suing a company because the company pulled their daughter’s picture off a photo sharing site and since they hadn’t copyrighted it it was legal for them to use it.  Now their daughter’s face is plastered on billboards across the country for a product they don’t like.  Like I said, my son put watermarks on his and copyrighted them but eventually he just bought a domain and has his ow photo site.
