accent quiz!

stolen from/inspired by robinwasserman:

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 am amused by this because Steve once ID’ed my accent as “BBC Midwest.”

    But–and I’m totally offended–they said I have a Philly accent! What the mother fuck?!!? C’mon, it’s Brooklyn, baby. That isn’t even an option. Any quiz that doesn’t have “Brooklyn” as an option is a fake.

    Because otherwise it would be a real diagnostic.

    I got that too! Makes no sense since I’m definitely from the west. I think midwest was just laziness on the quiz author’s part. They probably got tired of coding. And where the hell is the Midwest? My kinfolk in Kansas sound nothing like me.

    I got Midland, too. Which, being from central Illinois, makes sense.

    Grew up in Michigan, lived in Wisconsin, and now in Minnesota, so my Inland North would be accurate.
