I Told You I Don't Have an Accent

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Midland

"You have a Midland accent" is just another way of saying "you don't have an accent." You probably are from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri) but then for all we know you could be from Florida or Charleston or one of those big southern cities like Atlanta or Dallas. You have a good voice for TV and radio.

Laurie: Who knew I was from the Midland. Here I was thinking I was from the South all these 46 years. Guess this comes from a deaf, Austrian father who sounded like Arnold Swartzaneger (sp) and a tiny Southern Lady with a drawl from Hell. I'm just happy I can read, write, speak, and understand English. :) PS. Davi says "hi"

Jen T. (that's me) said...

I was a Midland accent person, too. These dang quizzes must be written by city folk or Yankees.

Laurie said...

Sophmom - You're the first Philly girl I've seen on this quiz.

Cindy - Hahahaha! Hi, Davi!

Jen - I wonder how in the world we all came out to be Midlanders.

When I was living in Las Vegas, sitting at the poker table, another player looked me in the eye and said, "What part of Texas are you from?" I guess that kinda settles the accent issue for me.

Yea! I'm as plain as white bread!

I like doing these little thingies you put up here laurie. they're actually quite fun.

I do not believe it, she said ABOUT this quiz answer:

Your accent is as Philadelphian as a cheesesteak! If you're not from Philadelphia, then you're from someplace near there like south Jersey, Baltimore, or Wilmington. if you've ever journeyed to some far off place where people don't know that Philly has an accent, someone may have thought you talked a little weird even though they didn't have a clue what accent it was they heard

Well to the club Laurie, Jen and Allen!

I blame television, 40 yrs ago the result would have been very different ;-)

Susan in St. Paul said...

opps, I forgot Cindybindy, sorry, welcome to you too!

Laurie said...

Pokerboss - You don't sound like you have an accent to me.

Allen - I'm glad you like them. :P

Lorna - How a-boot that?

Susan - You might be right about that.

I like the quizzes, too. But I sometimes think I have a quiz problem.

I was labeled The Midland North.

You may think you speak "Standard English straight out of the dictionary" but when you step away from the Great Lakes you get asked annoying questions like "Are you from Wisconsin?" or "Are you from Chicago?" Chances are you call carbonated drinks "pop."

OK -- I am from Chicago and I do call it "pop".

Laurie said...

La Sirena - Nobody in Texas calls it pop unless they're been transplanted here.
