What American accent do you have?

Southern. Love it or hate it, your accent says you're probably from somewhere south of the Ohio River.

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?

This explains so much. Really.

North Central. This is what everyone calls a "Minnesota accent." If you saw "Fargo" or "Drop Dead Gorgeous" you probably didn't think the characters sounded very out of the ordinary. Some Americans may mistake you for a Canadian.

I'm amazed at the accuracy of this test. I don't say very many words like a Mainer but apparently they sussed out some I do. On display, accent confused me:

Eastern New England. Whether or not you pronounce r's, you have the sound of Boston, New Hampshire, and Maine about you.

Western. Like Midland, Western is another accent that people consider neutral. So, you might not actually be from the Western half of the country, but you definitely sound like it.

Me, too. When I was answering the questions, I kept thinking, "I'm not answering these like a Southerner would"...but that's what I ended up with.
