I just retook the test for you and it said:

You sound like Stephen Hawkings cause Dalton is about to rip out your fucking throat.

Hurts don't it.

Hey, Stephen Hawking's voice has gotten him a lot of tail over the years so I'd be cool with that.

Generally yes, assuming by 'British' you basically mean eastern England.

To my ear the British influence is much more obvious in Indian English (pretty much regardless of subdialect) than in American English, but that could just be because I'm American and tend to hear all American accents relative to 'General American' English. Not that all international dialects of English aren't ultimately 'British-influenced' of course...lol.

Well they got that right!

Which American accent do you have?
Northeastern

This could either mean an r-less NYC or Providence accent or one from Jersey which doesn't sound the same. Just because you got this result doesn't mean you don`t pronounce R's.(People in Jersey don`t call their state "Joisey" in real life)

Neutral.

I always get Canadian, Irish, Australian ( ), or 'British person who spent some time in America or watches a lot of American TV.'

It said "Northen", which couldn't be any further from the truth.

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


which is surprising to me since I have a slight Latin accent.

not to mention my somewhat noticable lisp when i say words with the letter S

Which American accent do you have?

My Results:


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.

That's about right, even though I was born and raised in NYC...whenever I go places people tell me that I don't sound like a New Yawker and I've always thought myself to have more of a generic Northern accent. Not sure how I escaped a Noo Yawk accent as my dad and brother and sister all have Bronx accents of varying degrees; I guess I take after my mother who also has a more generic Northern accent (she's from Manhattan).
