That's a Southern accent you've got there. You may love it, you may hate it, you may swear you don't have it, but whatever the case, we can hear it.
Mine was : "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.Yep, I'm as surprised as anybody, given how bumpkin I actually sound in person. So if I WAS to be on the radio, people would be asking "Who is that bumpkin, anyway?"R'Ed
They nailed me, southern Ohio, having spent time with Yankees, Britts, etc..
I guess what we should all be thankful for is that we speak 'Murican instead of German, Japanese, or Russian!
My 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."Western Pennsylvania is probably not quite 'Inland, being a good bit east / closer to the coast than Wisconsin and Chicago. But I do call carbonated drinks 'pop'.
Actually, Barb... I believe western PA is in Appalachia!
