Does roof rhyme with foot or food?

What American accent do you have?


You have a Northern accent. That could either be the Chicago/Detroit/Cleveland/Buffalo accent (easily recognizable) or the Western New England accent that news networks go for.

    I am ‘Midland’, thank you very much. My sister apparently had a guy identify that she grew up in western Colorado just by hearing her talk. I could be making that up, though.


  2. Karla Said on:

    I’m Northern. When I was a senior in high school, a guy at McDonald’s picked up on my Detroit accent, even though I hadn’t lived there since I was 5. Good thing I moved back to my accent area. 😉


  3. Brad Said on:

    Midland. I had somebody tell me he heard a Nebraska influence in my speaking. But he told me that after I said I was from Nebraska.


  4. Karla Said on:

    Arron’s came back Midland. He insisted it was wrong and set about retaking it to get a result that included his home state of Iowa. All this after he complained that his family has an accent. Go figure.


  5. Beth Said on:

    I’m a Midland as well. Though when I speak with friends from the south, I slip into my southern roots very quickly.


  6. Kristi Said on:

    I’m Midland, too. Now how do Midlanders really pronounce it? Is it Midlund or Midland? Hmmm.


  7. Peggy Said on:

    Mid-Atlantic … it says Balto. & thereabouts … I guess I’m the thereabouts.


  8. Michele Said on:

    I was Midland. How can that be? I should have matched up with Peggy considering I live one block from where I grew up here in Ballmer (Baltimore) AND less than a mile from where my parents were raised. Please, help me understand hon!

    Maybe you had trouble reading the questions … not being a reader and all … if you’d like we’ll do a retake & I’ll read you the questions ….
