The Accent Test
Craig Cerino suggested this accent test, and it nailed me pretty good! I was born in Oregon, but spent from age 6 until I left home at 18 in Southwest Ohio. Since then I have spent a total 0f 15 years in Missouri (my current residence), 6 years in the San Francisco Bay area and 3 years in Charleston South Carolina, Beyond that I've several months each in Chicago, Orlando, San Diego, and Seattle and traveled most of the way around the Northern Hemisphere.
So, I think the following says all the above pretty well, don't you?
|What American accent do you have? |
Your Result: The Inland North
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."
