No Surprise Here.

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.

i don't think that's a very accurate quiz, but i also got midland, which would be about right. You should see the Wikipedia page about the Baltimore "dialect." It's pretty interesting.

Danielle: That's one of the sites where I did the research for my blog. Some of that content is in the title bar under "Live from Bawlmer." And some is in the sidebar, for example, "Youse" blogs, and the "Right Smart" Exercise.

Yay Baltimore!

OK. I actually took this quiz, just for shits and giggles. It, too, says I have a Midland accent. Let's just say that I have no discernible accent.

Admittedly, I escaped the Baltimore accent by choice, even thought I was surrounded by it as a kid growing up in and around this fair metropolis. The only time it is somewhat discernible is when I say anything that has an "o" in it. My college roommates used to identify this as my "twang," a comment I cannot help but laugh at to this day.
