I have a Philly accent, I wonder what it would say? I'm going to do it later.

The All-American one, lol.

My mom is English, so I first learned to speak with a British accent. It went away when I started attending school, but I still use English phrases a lot ("rubbish bin," etc.) I was born in New York city and my dad's family is from New York, so there are NY-isms that pop up when I talk ("whaddya want?") Grew up mostly in Maryland, so there's a bit of Maryland-ese when I say words with long "o" sounds (Imagine 'Coke' being said sort of in Valley-girl speak, with a pronounced long "o" -- that's the Maryland accent). Now I live in California, and I went to college here, so I use all the sweet Cali phrases (we say "dude" at work, etc.)

So, one big mish-mash of accents, I guess... people always ask, "where the F*** are you from?" lol



[EDIT: oops, posted without taking the quiz, lol. I got "southern." Weird. I guess Maryland is technically a southern state, maybe that's what did it.]

Somehow, it came up with southern for me, when everyone I've met from outside states pegs me for being from Philly. I don't trust that quiz.

What is the result for Philly/South Jersey accents anyway?

I got midland which defiantly isn't the Philly/South Jersey accent that I speak.

Midland, even though I was born in the Northeast and have lived there my whole life. Maybe because I make an effort to get rid of the accent sometimes.

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.

*ding ding ding* We have a winner!
Same here.

North Central

What people call the "Minnesota accent." Sounds almost Canadian. You may have even been asked if you were from Canada before.


Pretty good considering I am Canadian! (And I don't say "aboot" for about and frankly don't know of anyone who does!)

I got Midland as well. Seems they didn't ask any questions to tag people as Valley Girls, like if you alway inlfect at the end of a sentence or drop the middles out of words (ie, bu-on for button or moun-ain for mountain).

I got Northern, which is funny, because I still sound very much like a kid from The Bronx, especially when I tawk fast.
