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

The Inland North


The Northeast

The funny part about this is that if I were sitting in Memphis today, with my extended family, eating Chicken and Dumplins or Red Beans and Rice I most definitely would have gotten a different answer. Does it come out accurate for you? Leave me a comment and let me know!

Thanks to Dana for posting this first!

Oh, and since we're having a garage sale today this was a great post to fill in while I haggle with all of my non-english speaking fellow southern Californians so they will take our stuff off of my hands so I won't have to leave the house to get rid of it. Just doing my part for the Mexican economy.

Okay I did it. And even though I am 4th generation Orange says I have a MID WEST accent.

Huh? Whaaa? Sure I lived in Chicago for 3 years. And the whole time I was there people made fun of my 'California Accent' and often getting 'you sound like one of those surfer/valley girl people'....I didn't get that either.

But seriously? Mid West? I am confused now.

I know y'all are amazed to find that I have a southern accent, down here in Birmingham. The podcasts on my blog probably alerted you to that!
