LOL! Nope - No Accent Here...

This came to me via Jane who does indeed sound as if she comes from the region of the country that she's lived in all her life!

My parents were determined that I'd not pick up the Southern accent they heard when they moved here in the 50's. By the same token, they didn't want me to sound like the New Englanders they were coming from....especially that oft-mentioned "aye-uh!" I remember being brought back into a room to "say it correctly before you leave...." Drove me nuts, till I did the same thing with my grammar students!

:)
Guess Mom & Dad did a good job, huh? I really don't have an accent, unless I'm trying to play-act with whatever region of the country I'm visiting! lolol!

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

My test result states my accent is from Philly. However, throw a bit of alkee in my system, and you'd know I am a Southerner!
