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.

Um, whatever, my non-descript accent can't be anything but non-descript.
Here are the places and years I've lived- this all equals a midwestern accent...
Born Philadelphia (parents from Philly/S. Jersey and Long Island/S. Jersey)
Lived S. Jersey (Sweedsboro) until 3
Lived Baltimore County Md. (Timonium)until 4
Lived Ossining, NY (on the Hudson, 1 hour North of Manhattan. Downstate. Really) until 7
Lived Tokyo, Japan until 9
Lived Ossining, NY until 18
Lived Clinton, NY (Central NY, north of Albany, east of Syracuse) until 22
Live Washington, DC (but my parents now live 1/2 in Madison, WI and 1/2 in Sarasota, FL- does that make me a midwesterner enough to claim the accent???

Family wedding last weekend. Stay tuned.
