What's your accent?

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: North Central

"North Central" is what professional linguists call the Minnesota accent. If you saw "Fargo" you probably didn't think the characters sounded very out of the ordinary. Outsiders probably mistake you for a Canadian a lot.

The West

The Midland


The Inland North

The South


The Northeast

I saw this on CatBookMom's blog, so gave it a try. I find the results puzzling ... Minnesota?! I've never even been to Minnesota! Strange results for someone who has lived in San Francisco all my life. Ok, well, that's not entirely true, however I have lived in California all my life. I was born & raised in San Francisco, lived in San Francisco most my life, and live not too far from SF during my college years. That little quiz is smoking crack, lol.

The bar graph thingie doesn't seem to show up. It looks like ~80% West, 70% Midland, 60% Boston, 30% Inland North, 25% South, 20% Philadelphia, and 10% Northeast.

Yes, the little quiz is on something. I came out at as from Inland North - i.e. Wisconsin. But then the writer of the quiz may think all as Californian's speak like valley girls or maybe the LA types

Down right goffy.
