Accent Relocation Program

Y'all might like this one. I reckon you'll tell me how you score?

What American accent do you have?
Created by Xavier on

You're probably from somewhere near New York City, possibly north Jersey, or Connecticut or Rhode Island. If you are from New York City you may be one of the types who people never believe when you say you're from New York.

Take this quiz now - it's easy!
We're going to start with "cot" and "caught." When you say those words do they sound the same or different?

Btw, I totally stoled this from Jersey Girl Lball. Rawk.

Whether you have the world famous Inland North accent of the Great Lakes area, or the radio-friendly sound of upstate NY and western New England, your accent is what used to set the standard for American English pronunciation (not much anymore now that the Inland North sounds like it does).

That quiz scores a total lack of an accent as being southern, which is just wrong!

Haveyouseenlucky... I think you are delusional in your total lack of accent.. everyone has some sort of accent. :)

I said they sounded different. Sorry, too tired to do the whole quiz

this thing put me as being up northm like, Buffalo north. Clearly, there should have been a question on there that asks you if "whore" rhymes with "skewah" or "bore".

Howdy there y'all. I scored Midlands, which is the equivalent of an undistinguishable accent. Woo hoo! All of those years of trying to get rid of my accent have now I just sound like a gay newscaster. :)

Pegged me right on the money, well, if there was some money, anyway: Western.

Like Midland, Western is another accent that people consider neutral. So, you might not actually be from the Western half of the country, but you definitely sound like it.

Not I, Lori. I have no accent. I speak perfectly, just like I do everything else.

It totally pegged me as being from NYC, which I find amazing since I moved away 9 years ago and I *swear* I don't have an accent anymore!
