Oh noes! Accent meme

Baa! Baaaaaaaa! Flist, I follow you! But this can't be right, can it?
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?


I mean, I come from Massachusetts, and my parents definitely sound like New Englanders. (Not Bostonians, mind you, whom I hear as slightly different from my parents. The As are different.) After leaving the Bay State, I moved to the Bay Area, where I have been surrounded by Californians. And as far as I know, I sound like a Californian now: I drawl a little bit, and my Rs have far more presence than they used to. My parents tell me I sound Californian to them.

But perhaps I don't talk like a Californian after all.
