What American accent do you have?
Created by Xavier on Memegen.net

Midland. The Midland (please don't confuse with "Midwest") itself is the neutral zone between the North and South. But just because you have a Midland accent doesn't mean you're from there. Since it is considered a neutral, default, "non-regional" accent you could easily be from someplace without its own accent, like Florida, or a big city in the South like Dallas, Houston, or Atlanta.

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?

Huh, it pegs me as "New York City. You are most definitely from New York City. Not New Jersey, not Connecticut." But the followup reference doesn't show what distinguishes those... and my mom (who really is from the City) thinks I have a Connecticut accent (it's mostly some nasality in the 'a' that the questions don't capture.) Mostly it comes across as "New York has all the vowels" though :-)
