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?
Quiz Created on GoToQuiz

This is kind of interesting, and kind of odd. Answer a dozen questions and they tell you what kind of accent you have. Nobody has to say anything, nobody listens to you, it's all done with written words. Well, not exactly. Given two words, you need to be able to say whether you pronounce them the same, or differently, and I found some of them a little tricky. I had to say them out loud and try and determine whether the sounds were the same or different. The results weren't too surprising, I lived in Ohio for at least eight years.Test here.

Bonus Techno-Gripe: If you try and post the results from your test on blogger, do not click on Compose. Blogger will alter the html and the pretty red bars in the graph will disappear.
