Northern

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.




Yeppers! Chi-Town for sure. With a little bit of New York, too, even though I've never been there hahaha

What American accent do you have? (Best version so far)

My Results:





Canadian

People from outside North America probably think you're from the States, but over here we wouldn't make such a mistake.

It's the same for me! I wonder if that's because we're both from the same area of the UK?

Personally I think it just gave me that because it didn't know where else to put me. For all those "do you pronounce the vowel like-" type questions I just guessed as for most of them I didn't pronounce the vowel like any of the options given (if that makes sense).

Another Midlander here. I grew up in Wisconsin and lived there until I was 26. Once I moved to the northwest, I had some people tell me they could hear a midwest accent (Wiscaaaaaahnsin), and others tell me they couldn't tell at all.

Northeast New England accent! That's funny cos the only accent I probably have is a slight Indian accent. I guess my English pronunciation is most similar to a Bostoner's accent.
