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.
Result Breakdown:
95% The Midland
80% The West
63% Boston
59% North Central
48% The Inland North
40% Philadelphia
38% The South
33% The Northeast

Northern Minnesotan's definitely have the Fargo accent. It's not exaggerated at all. That sing songy, everything sounds like a question accent is definitely real and all my inlaws have it.

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The 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."

Oh yeah, totally. I wasn't discounting that they do. I should have just said "from my personal experience the good people of South Dakota sound like characters from Fargo." The way I typed that insinuates that Minnesotan's do not...that's not what I meant. ;-D
