What Accent Do You Have?

Discussion in 'Anything goes' started by Write-brained, Apr 3, 2007.

  1. This quiz tells you what American accent you have:


    It nailed mine: Northeast, Philly.

    Wonder if Sportchick's will say Valley Girl.

    I was Midland and it claims I am from flyover country. Makes me wonder how the rest of the people from the Northwest talk that I don't.

    Midland/Northeast. Spent the first 30 years of my life there so they nailed it.

    Angola, I don't think PNW's have a native accent, so many transplants from the Midwest, etc.

    Mine claims "The Inland North"

    Let the laughter ensue ... wrong region, wrong part of the country. For starters, a carbonated beverage is a "soda" to me, not a "pop" like it is to that part of the land.

    Mine said midland, too. It said I was probably from the Midwest (nope), but that I could be from a big southern city like Atlanta or somewhere in Florida (nope). It did say I would be good for radio or TV (yep).

    I was born and raised in a town of 12,000 in the deep south, but I guess almost 10 years in a college town and around this business has helped me shake the pussycatree accent.

    EDIT: LOL! I'm guessing there's some software that changed the next to last word of the original post. The sentence should read "... the country accent" but I spelled country phonetically in the manner a southerner might say it. Thus, "See You Next Tuesday"-ree turned into to pussycatree. Oh well, much more amusing than talking about country accents. wtf?

    Mine is "The West" which is apparently the "lowest common denominator of American speech."

    I don't know if I should be insulted by that or not.

    In many broadcast schools people are taught to speak like Northwesterners. You'll fit in anywhere, except we call fizzy beverages "pop."
