What’s Your Accent?

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 found this quiz interesting, mostly because I couldn’t imagine answering the questions any other way than I did (don’t these people know how to speak?); I have been told many times that I have a great phone voice. I always attributed it to my days as the hospital operator in which a cool, modulated tone was a good thing. I never did pick up the phrase “warshing” that my grandmother always used for the laundry. And my father has some pretty cute Ohio quirks as well. I always thought that folks out here on the West Coast really didn’t have any accents. It’s just everybody else…

Can you tell it’s been a long day and I’ve been surfing the Internet for hours? I’m on bedrest because of some pretty significant bleeding. The twins are evidently still fine (Twin B was doing a little boogie dance on ultrasound this morning), but I would have sworn that we lost one last night. All is OK right now, but I’ll get bored quickly with this, I’m sure!

    Rest well love.Your Yankee accent is mild as American accents go and one can tell easily that you are one when you speak. And speaking of voices, I have a friend who thinks I’d make a killing at the end of a 1-800 line. I am sure it pays WAAAY better than graphic design ever will. LOL!
