Kinda fun.

Here's my results:

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.

Guess I'm just a typical surfer kid from SoCal.

"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.

Pretty much nailed it, I guess. I've lived in Houston all my life, and southern cities don't get much bigger.

they nailed it with me also
Your Result: North Central


"North Central" is what professional linguists call the Minnesota accent. If you saw "Fargo" you probably didn't think the characters sounded very out of the ordinary. Outsiders probably mistake you for a Canadian a lot.

I can multi-task...I just can't talk on the phone and multi-task.

Besides, I never said I couldn't talk. In fact, I seem to remember having a conversation with you about 20 minutes ago.

Never said I couldn't talk, just said I was moderately busy.

it says for me
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."
hahah so me
