Funny, I don’t look Midlandish

I can never resist an accent quiz. Tip of the hat to lowercase liberty for this one.

What American accent do you have? (Best version so far)Midland (“Midland” is not necessarily the same thing as “Midwest”) The default, lowest-common-denominator American accent that newscasters try to imitate. Since it’s a neutral accent, just because you have a Midland accent doesn’t mean you’re from the Midland. Personality Test Results

  1. Mine came out “Northern–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. ” Interesting, as I grew up just south of Toledo–right in the zone. Seems pretty accurate. I’m pretty good at identifying regional accents on other people.

  2. I’m Midlandish too. Must be watching too much cable news. Better switch over to The Dukes of Hazzard or the Beverly Hillbillies.

  3. I thought this would be fun to try since I’m not even American, but Irish. Anyway, it turns out I have a Midlandish accent!

  4. Well, I have an Irish last name, so…there must be a connection!

  5. Hey, I’ve got Irish too, maybe that’s where the Midlandish is coming from!
