Where Do You Sound Like?

This was my result which I thought was funny. I have lived on the East Coast and South more than anywhere else. However, my first seven years were overseas and then grades 2-8 were in Maryland where my father said I was starting to have a Baltimore/Maryland accent. They say your accent develops strongest by 4th grade. After moving South some say I have a slight Southern accent. I pick up accents really easily so it can be hard to figure out where I come from based on what I sound like. Enjoy!

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.

Hi, Lisa...sorry but everybody has an accent...it's just about what kind of accent they have....=)Even a Midland accent sounds like an "accent" in places like
Europe, for example.
You should not have let someone read who studied this. It is the report that said it's "no accent"...so you're excused.

Apparently I have a north-eastern accent...as in New York! Ha! I guess that's what you get when you cross London and Atlanta.
