Which American accent do you have? Quiz

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.


And no, I don't say "aboot."

Midland

("Midland" is not necessarily the same thing as "Midwest") The default, lowest-common-denominator American accent that newscasters try to imitate. Since it's a neutral accent, just because you have a Midland accent doesn't mean you're from the Midland.

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.

*ding ding ding* We have a winner!
