Accents?

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Inland North
 

You may think you speak "Standard English straight out of the dictionary" but when you step away from the Great Lakes you get asked annoying questions like "Are you from Wisconsin?" or "Are you from Chicago?" Chances are you call carbonated drinks "pop."

The Midland
 
The Northeast
 
Philadelphia
 
The South
 
North Central
 
The West
 
Boston
 
What American accent do you have?


Well...

Inland north? I'd say "upper midwest" or "snow belt"

Except the folks don't know that "soda" and "pop" are a major divider in the upper midwest. "Pop" was always a plains (Minnesota) thing to me.

BTW, jaylake...

...tell the folks your vocabulary is a regional accent, and that you don't like being ridiculed or insulted over it.
