Which American Accent?

What American accent do you have?

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.”

Fellow homeschooling moms, Dorothy and Debbie, posted their results to this interesting quiz. I was curious enough to follow suit. It’s strange to me that this quiz is evaluated without speaking at all! Investigate for yourself:)

My quiz results originally displayed red bars next to the various regions listed.  Mine showed a longer red bar for “The Northeast” and gradually shorter red bars for the regions below.

    And do you call carbonated drinks pop? We used to call them that here in England back when I was a kid, though I’ve not heard it for a while.

  2. Heather says:

    Yes, Dorothy. It’s always “pop” here in Michigan:) In fact, I was 20 years old when I traveled to southern states and learned that other parts of the world drank “soda” instead!

    That’s interesting that the terms you’ve used in England have changed over the years. Have you any conjecture why?

    LOL. I call it “pop” too. I thought it was a fun quiz!

    I never did try that, but I was curious how they can determine an accent without hearing you speak. By the pronunciations listed, I suppose.
