What American accent do you have?

Apparently I have a non-accent. The funny part is that I grew up in the Northeast, and that’s where I have the least similarity. There are some strong accents in the area, but I just never picked them up.

What American accent do you have?

Your Result: The West

Your accent is the lowest common denominator of American speech. Unless you’re a SoCal surfer, no one thinks you have an accent. And really, you may not even be from the West at all, you could easily be from Florida or one of those big Southern cities like Dallas or Atlanta.

  1. Hmm…funny…I got the “West” accent as well, with the bar filled completely.

    And I’m from Texas, San Antonio to be exact. Pretty much everybody I know speaks like I do, and they’re all native Texans. When I moved to Illinois, people were surprised when I told them I was from Texas, as I “didn’t have an accent”. Another thing, I’ve always heard (well, been told) how, supposedly, people from Texas use the word “Coke” to describe all types of soda. Maybe it’s people from Southern/Central Texas, or large cities (though I grew up in the outskirts of San Antonio, but not the suburbs) in Texas that have this accent, which to my ears, and to everybody I know is “normal”.

    That’s something to think about…

    Oh, if you’re wondering why I’m commenting on an entry that’s well over a year old, it’s because I’m simply reading all your entries in reverse chronological order.
