I'm a fifth generation Californian, and have lived on every continent except Anartica, and I came out Midlands as well. I've always thought we Californians sounded like we are from Ohio. Cool survey.

It got me wrong as it has me from "The Inland North"; but I was raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and except for several years in Hawaii I've spent the last 23 years in Houston, Texas.

Where are you really from

While my hometown is Chicago, I have lived most of my life near the confluence of the Mississippi and Ohio rivers in Southern Illinois and that is exactly where the quiz placed me . . . . .

My results have me from "The Inland North". I was born and raised in the North East, but 40 years in AZ must have moved me slightly from my origin.

Hi from GA. . . Born in Northern Indiana, raised in Florida, and 30-some years in Atlanta, the quiz said I 'don't really have an accent' and I would agree. However my Yankee relatives think I sound like a Southerner. Kinda fun quiz though, thanks and regards, Craig

Native New Englander... ayuh.... but in Texas for 40 years... so it properly put me in the West....

i think its interesting that many of the questions were about how we hear certain words as opposed to how we pronounce them.

Of course I can always blame my high school speech teacher who all but beat the "ayuhs" out of her students....

she always said, if you want to be a public speaker... you can't get "theya" from "heah!

My results:

Judging by how you talk you are probably from north Jersey, New York City, Connecticut or Rhode Island. Chances are, if you are from New York City (and not those other places) people would probably be able to tell if they actually heard you speak.

But I cheated, I don't have an American accent as I'm from southern England, but the results are not as odd as they seem; native London accents can move effortlessly to New York City as a lot of the vowel sounds are similar. Just ask native Londoner Bob Hoskins.

The test showed that I am from the West. I was born and raised in Miami, Florida.

I'm presumably ... from the midland:

Quote:
"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.
In other words, unidentifiable blah.
