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.

  3. I tested as Inland North the first time, but had to reevaluate my answers to tilt the results to Midland, in order to confirm your claim that it’s partly my fault that you have “no accent”. Obviously I’ll do what it take’s to validate my offspring!
