What American accent do you have?

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."

93% The Inland North
88% The Northeast
87% Philadelphia
70% The Midland
62% The South
31% Boston
25% The West

Me too. I'd say, "dude if you can't guess where I'm from you're hella dumb."

Okay that was 11 words, but still. :-B

You definitely have a Boston accent, even if you think you don't. Of course, that doesn't mean you are from the Boston area (oh but I am), you may also be from New Hampshire or Maine (no, I have all my teeth).

Your Result: The West
Your accent is the lowest common denominator of American speech. Unless you're a SoCal surfer, no one thinks you have an accent. And really, you may not even be from the West at all, you could easily be from Florida or one of those big Southern cities like Dallas or Atlanta.

-Never thought of myself as having an accent... Ive lived: abroad, dallas, oregon, and atlanta... so pretty spot on.

And I have literally had arguments with my southern wife over the "Stock" "Stalk" issue. THE L IS SILENT DAMNIT!
