Accent Meem - RonO's Ramblings

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.

The West
Boston
North Central
The Inland North
The South
Philadelphia
The Northeast
What American accent do you have?

I guess this makes sense, since Albuquerque has strong linguistic connections to "The Midland" as well as "The West" and "The Inland Central" (I've often joked that half the population of Albuquerque came from Chicago sometime in the last two generations).

FYI: There is a bug in the quiz systems HTML for posting, which causes it to suppress the red bars showing how well the participant's accent matched the given standard accents.
