Re: What american accent do you have?

"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."

Inland North, not even close.

I might speak more clearly and ennunciate better then someone from baltimore itself, but you can't get much more mid-atlantic then my accent.

Your Result: The West


Your accent is the lowest common denominator of American speech. Unless you're a SoCal surfer, no one thinks you have an accent. And really, you may not even be from the West at all, you could easily be from Florida or one of those big Southern cities like Dallas or Atlanta.


pretty much right on

Inland 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."


That's actually true, nobody believes that I'm from Miami, although I was born and raised here and have never been to the north.

damn this was pretty right....
