It’s going around on various blogs, it’s a holiday, so why not:

What American accent do you have?

Your Result: Philadelphia

Your accent is as Philadelphian as a cheesesteak! If you’re not from Philadelphia, then you’re from someplace near there like south Jersey, Baltimore, or Wilmington. if you’ve ever journeyed to some far off place where people don’t know that Philly has an accent, someone may have thought you talked a little weird even though they didn’t have a clue what accent it was they heard.

  1. Sorta of like me, being suprises when I say “ya’ll wanna go over yonder” or know a guy named Bubba, Mary Ann, or Wilber, which sadly I do. The first is a Sheriff’s officer,next is my 2nd cousin on mother’s side, the last is a guy in engineering I work with. Yep, welcome to the south.

  2. I can never take those accent quizzes because I’m never sure how I normally pronounce words.

  3. Mine, of course, came out to the Boston accent. When people in Philly ask why I don’t have a “Massachusetts twang,” I explain to them that the Boston accent is more than “pahking a cah”. I’ve lost that part of my accent, but I still pronounce “dawn” and “don” the same, as well as “caught” and “cot”. I don’t pronounce “pin” and “pen” the same though.

    That and I still call rubber bands “elastics”.

  4. I was shocked that mine came out with Philly on top…and I’ve never lived there. I have always been told that mine is a Southern and Midwestern blend, although as I have gotten older I am going back to my old southern drawl.

  5. I’m a midland and apparently have a good voice for TV or radio. Funny, I always think I sound like a dork, but people always tell me after my radio appearances that I do sound really good…so who knows.
