Accent Quiz

I thought this was fun and would like to see if it’s correct for others. Obviously it was spot-on with me, I for sure have the Missouri accent, or lack of an accent as it’s called. I don’t do the hard-core StL dialect like: warsh (wash), farty (forty), zink (sink), etc like you hear from mostly the older generation. Although I do catch myself doing the nasally sound with words like “cat” on occasion.

So take it and post in the comments with your result!

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.

    I have a midland accent too. Though, I’ve found that if I’m around other people with an accent, I tend to start talking like them (just while I’m around them) LOL!!!
