    This has been around before but it's fun to take the quiz again.

    There are also other quizzes on the site that you might find interesting.

    92% Southern. Probably can't get 100% unless you're from Mississippi or Georgia.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    The Inland North, 100%. Actually, Iowa/Missouri. But it's "soda pop", and I never called my Dad "Pop"!

    When I attended an insurance company training school in western MA, I was told I had a southern accent. When I was in GA on a year and a half of TDYs for the USDA, I was told I had a yankee accent. So I reckon that puts me somewar in the middle.

    Well, this is just weird. I've only been to Philly once in my life and only have one friend from there. We generally just email, so couldn't have possibly picked up her accent. I've taken this test quite a while ago and had the same result. Maybe SR has rubbed off on me, being from Jersey, but I no way talk like him. So much for these tests.


    What American accent do you have?
    Your Result: Philadelphia

    87%

    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.

    70%

    The Northeast

    67%

    The Inland North

    65%

    The South

    60%

    The Midland

    25%

    Boston

    15%

    North Central

    Your Result: Boston 88%

    Weird result to say the least! Have lived in CA, OH, TX, FL, NC. and now in GA. ... but never in Mass.

    Vacationed once, years ago on Cape Cod in Hyannis Port and got a kick out of one of the local police officers that pronounced the word "airport" as "aya port" without the "r" ... I can still hear him saying it.

    84% Southern but considering mine has been influenced by my living in Europe, CA, Pittsburgh, MO, and Michigan...that figures.
