On Accents

I’m pretty sure I’ve done a quiz like this before, but I’m not finding it off-hand in my archives. And because I don’t feel like going through my archives looking for a meme done long ago, we’ll just do it again! (ETA: Here it is. April 2005.)

So! What sort of accent do I have?

What American accent do you have?

Midland. The Midland (please don’t confuse with "Midwest") itself is the neutral zone between the North and South. But just because you have a Midland accent doesn’t mean you’re from there. Since it is considered a neutral, default, "non-regional" accent you could easily be from someplace without its own accent, like Florida, or a big city in the South like Dallas, Houston, or Atlanta.

Take this quiz now – it’s easy!
We’re going to start with "cot" and "caught." When you say those words do they sound the same or different?

Seems pretty accurate to me. 🙂
