We're Americans. We don't have accents!
Or do we??? I found this little quiz today and thought it was fun. Turns out, I don't have an accent. Which is odd since I have lived in TX my whole life.
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.

73% The South
69% The West
56% The Inland North
39% The Northeast
29% North CentralClint (TX) 2001 Silverado LS 4.8L auto 2wd ECSB [GARAGE]

Similar for me. I don't agree with any of the answers for question #8 though.

Hmm not sure how correct this is cause it says I'm midland even though I'm from Alabama and people can tell anywhere I go with my southern accent.2004 GMC Sierra SLT 6.0L 4x4

Yeah, it's not the most accurate test but fun nonetheless. I know I have a little bit of a southern draw but it put me as midland.

It was pretty accurate for me!
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."
