Good thing it didn't ask about the plural of "you..."

What American accent do you have?
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.

The Midland
 
Boston
 
North Central
 
The Inland North
 
Philadelphia
 
The South
 
The Northeast

Now, who's surprised? Anybody else who says I come from the Midwest gets a mouth full of knuckles, hear?

Heh. I took that one a while ago:

I actually had to mess with it to get it to come out to "Boston," though - it originally told me that I had no discernable accent at all. The "How Massachusetts Are You" quiz? I nailed that, 100%, on my first try...

Midland for me, with South second. I've lived in Mississippi or Memphis, TN all my life and people tell me I sound very country. I hear it, myself.

O took it but I won't divulge my accent out of protest. There was no Southwest category. A region that has a very distinct accent
