What american accent do you have?

Hoboken411 doesn’t normally do this, but I took this accent quiz online, and it’s pretty spot-on. I’m sure it’s not too difficult to figure out.

What results did you get?

Well, I was born, raised and spent most of my life in New Jersey and it says:

[quote]Your Result: The Inland North

You may think you speak “Standard English straight out of the dictionary” but when you step away from the Great Lakes you get asked annoying questions like “Are you from Wisconsin?” or “Are you from Chicago?” Chances are you call carbonated drinks “pop.”

Not sure where that came from? I did it twice just to be sure. Often times, people say I have the “newscaster” non-accent…don’t really understand where the middle-America assessment came from (and no, I don’t call soda “pop”).

Forgot one:

Long island:

“I’ll have a soder and she’ll have a waddah.”

(Those Rs drop off and reappear in the strangest of places)

Boston:
“Ehr um, ya khan’t pahk heya.”
(and Marblehead is pronounced “Mob-ahead”)

Maine:
“I’m gone a get a bee-ya at the bah.

Queens:
“Oh moy gawad, whad a noyt mayha.”
(“Oh my god what a nightmare” – like the radio ad)

Jersey:
“Oh no you dih-int.” (Urban)
“My shirt lost a buh-in.” or “The state capital is Treh-in.”(suburban)

Me: Philly accent. That makes sense – I think I’ve visited there at least three times.
