Accent? What accent?

Took another online quiz today. Here is my result:




What American accent do you have?
Created by Xavier on


Midland. The Midland (please don’t confuse with “Midwest”) itself is the neutral zone between the North and South. But just because you have a Midland accent doesn’t mean you’re from there. Since it is considered a neutral, default, “non-regional” accent you could easily be from someplace without its own accent, like Florida, or a big city in the South like Dallas, Houston, or Atlanta.

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?

I find this interesting, given that I’m from Michigan. I wonder what’s different about my accent from whichever one Michigan is in (I could only get a list of other answers, without the description, so I don’t know if MI is considered Northern or North Central).

  1. Hmmm. Last time I did this, I was something different (although I don’t, now, remember what). Now, I am northeastern. I find this amusing, since I grew up south of the Mason-Dixon Line and I’ve worked hard to have a “neutral” accent. Then again, I can still tawk like Ah’m from Bawlmer if Ah wirk on it.
