Another blog quiz

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.

This didn't seem well designed to identify the Southern accent. People in the South tend to run words together and soften or contract them. For example "down there" and "up there" become "dow'nar" and "up'are". The town of Rutherfordton is pronounced "Rulfton".
