Accent quiz

Swiped from penny_sieve

What American accent do you have?
Created by Xavier on Memegen.net

Neutral. Not Northern, Southern, or Western, just American. Your national American identity is more important to you than your local identity, because you don't really have a local identity to begin with.

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?





Yep. That sounds about right--at least as far as my accent goes. I don't know why having a neutral accent would imply that I "don't have a local identity", though.

New York City. You are most definitely from New York City. Not New Jersey, not Connecticut. If you are from Jersey then you can probably get into New York City in 10 minutes or less.

Weird for a non native speaker.

Eastern New England. Whether or not you pronounce r's, you have the sound of Boston, New Hampshire, and Maine about you. You do think "don" sounds like "dawn" even though the people down in New York City don't.

That just about hits the nail on the head for me. :) I love this quiz!

It WORKS!

Canada. You probably get irritated when British people and Europeans think you're from the States, but over here we wouldn't make a mistake like that.

If you're not Canadian, you're either a Minnesotan, or you're a Westerner who over-thought some of the questions on the quiz.

I didn't think that would be an option! I guess it *really* meant American in the inclusive (North American) way that Canadians tend to like :) (yet that almost never includes South America...)
