According to this, What American accent do you have?
Just seeing if this is accurate. I live in NC, but I don't have a southern accent, most people think I'm from the Northern states.

I guess those from other countries can participate, it might be a little off. just say where you're from

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."

I like guitars, running, and math.

I got northeast which is where I'm from so yeah.
Soon you will sit on the bench
of those who deny I have my soul
You sell a dream you create
Condemned by what you condemned before
Smooth are the words you sing down and high
Underground is your joy your laws

our Result: The Northeast


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.

Makes sense I guess.
I love having an Irish accent when I'm in America . Can't wait for my year abroad.

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.

Makes sense, even though I've lived in Texas my whole life.

"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 scored closest to Philadelphia, and I live in a suburb right outside of Philly.

According to my old history teacher, Irish/English/Scottish accents derived into that whiny Boston/New York accent first... before the other American accents developed.
I've decided that my signature is terrible. I'm open to suggestions.


Click me, or I'll die.

I got The West,
which is awesome.

I really have no accent of any kind so it's pretty accurate
Blindfolds aside I'd probably still close my eyes

And try to feel a trembling fetal life inside
that shotgun barrel that's about to make me bleed

Like an ulcer in the stomach of the beast

Ya that's what I was thinking, because the Irish diaspora went mainly to the East Coast at first, mainly Boston and NYC as far as I know.

Inland North, no surprise there. I grew up in Wisconsin.
