|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.

As you may have realized, I was born and raised in southern New Hampshire, which some people argue is really northern Massachusetts. So you might expect me to have a "Boston accent." And my parents do. Thick. What you don't know is that I don't sound like my parents, at all. They sound like they should be voice coaches for actors playing characters from Boston. (In fact Jeff Bridges totally should have hired them when he made Blown Away because his accent was The.Worst.Boston.Accent.Evah)
When I was young, about ten or so, I made a conscious decision not to sound like them. I practiced English by listening to Chet Curtis and Natalie Jacobson, with whom my mom went to college. So it is entirely unironic that I "have a good voice for TV and radio."
You can only hear vestiges of the accent now when I say Bawstin. I can't really imitate my parents. Oh no, I can say, "It was a wicked hahd slapshawt."
