    It showed "the South." I am from Texas, so it is correct!

    It said midland for me and that would be central Illnois originally. I have a "faucet" southern accent now, can turn it on and off at will. (TN)

    I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. I was told I was a southerner.
    Happy sewing and quilting,

    Wow, mine said Southern and I've lived in Michigan all my life. Guess I'll have to thank my parents for that one (North Carolina).

    Southern, so very true.

    I took several more they offered and learned some things by looking at the answers! Good site, thanks.

    Has me slightly off center also, but, then, I am off center. Mine came up 'the midlands', but born in WV. Raised in western MD and have lived all over these states.

    Guess I can't deny that Boston accent even though I've been living in New York for 36 years! I grew up in Mass until 21 years old. Opps.... now you know my age LOL

    when I was in junior high, we saw a filmstrip (remember those?) about accents in NYC. Depending on your accent, they could tell your neighborhood. Like tirty tree for "33"?(a Brooklyn nabe) or berl in erl for "boil in oil" (Green Point or green pernt if that's where you lived.). Nowadays, neighborhoods are so changed that these accents are lost. Of course, because I live in Manhattan (not the Bronx, Queens, or Brooklyn), I do not have an accent (LOL)

    Everyone has an accent! I have heard people in Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, Indiana, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Ohio etc. all say they do not have an accent......but of course they do - they just think everyone else sounds funny! I had a professor in college who taught linguistics who would have you read a certain paragraph and could pinpoint not only the state, but what part of it you were from. If you tried to fool him he knew. I have heard at least a hundred different accents in my state alone. By the way, this test and several others I have taken says I speak with a middle Canadian accent. I am from Southern Illinois.

    MIDLAND I'm from West, by gosh, Virginia but we northern panhandlers tend to speak Pittsburghese. "My car tire caught fire" would sound like: "My car tar cot far."

    Thanks for the fun, Ditter.

    Mine said Inland North. Would think "by the shores of Gitche Gumee" qualifies. Funny, my relatives in Chicago think I sound Canadian. There was no category for Ranger. Oh wait, there is. It's lumped with the accent from NW MN. No way.

    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it difficult to plan the day.
