Fun Quiz

What American accent do you have?
Created by Xavier on

Mid-Atlantic. This is what everyone calls a Philadelphia accent although it's also the accent of south Jersey, Baltimore, and Wilmington. Well, everyone that lives near there, that is. Outsiders can tell you talk differently from them even though they can't tell what your accent is.

Take this quiz now - it's easy!
We're going to start with "cot" and "caught." When you say those words do they sound the same or different?

I hate to admit it, but this was dead on!

Damn that was spot on.

"Eastern New England. Whether or not you pronounce r's, you have the sound of Boston, New Hampshire, and Maine about you."

Wow, that nailed me! "Southern. Love it or hate it, your accent says you're probably from somewhere south of the Ohio River."

Hee! This quiz (I took a different version of it a while back and then took this one just now) insists that I have a Southern accent. Really, I don't. I have more of a southern Ohio hillbilly accent. This version gave a link to an explanation of the results though, so I could see why it kept saying that (I said that "pen" and "pin" sound the same and that "feel" and "fill" sound the same).

The quiz was dead on. I have a Midland or "neutral" accent, as in no accent at all!

I got the same answer as you did, and I was born and raised in the NY area! Wonder where I picked that one up from?! I know I don't have a New York accent, but...well...I have a slight Westchester accent. And a teeny bit of a Southern accent comes out once in a blue moon (my dad was from Kentucky). How that turned out Mid-Atlantic, I don't know. Heh. :)
