|What American accent do you have? (Best version so far) |
You have a Northern accent. That could either be the Chicago/Detroit/Cleveland/Buffalo accent (easily recognizable) or the Western New England accent that news networks go for.

I'm not sure this is really me. I'm from NY (not the city, though) and had a strong NY accent till I moved to Fairfax, VA, in 1986. My different way of speaking was pointed out to me (ever so politely) by classmates, so I quickly neutralized my strange (to them) vowel sounds. I know I say some things "Southern" now, but maybe the net effect has been to give me a Northern accent. Weird. Or maybe I just answered some questions wrong. (Via a circuitous route [pronounced like "out" and not like "root," although I do use both pronunciations--man, am I messed up!] , from cvilleblogs to Wags Outside to CvilleWords to lowercase liberty to LewRockwell.com.) I think I'll take the quiz again and see what happens. :)
Ok, now I come out with a Midland accent. Either I can't hear myself, or I'm very confused about how to say things. Fun!
So, here's a poll--if you actually know me in person, what do you think I sound like? Be nice.
