A Quiz for Amber

My friend Amber has been complaining that her new friends in California think her Texas accent is so cute. The problem is that she didn't know she had an accent. So, I'm challenging her (and any other curious observers) to take this quiz. Here are my results:

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.

What American accent do you have?

It was pretty accurate for me: I was born in St. Louis (and have mostly retained that accent) but moved to Atlanta after kindergarten (and thus have added useful Southern words like "y'all" and the occasional accidental drawl). What's your American accent?

My accent was "The West"...sounds like a mini-series.
