American accent

I'd like to thank my parents...

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.

If you talk to me long enough, you'll hear a few regionalisms (I usually call fizzy drinks "pop"), and you'd definitely know that I'm not from Massachusetts (e.g. I call it a "water fountain" not a "bubbler"), but my pronunciation of words is pretty accent-free.

Real people from Massachusetts call it a water fountain. I have no idea who calls a water fountain a bubbler. The water cooler, on the other hand, that sometimes gets called a bubbler.

I also scored Midland primary, but Boston was top of my list.

I scored Inland North. Boston wasn't even close to the top.... and I've lived here since birth. Their indicators aren't right on....
