Nailed me as neutral - midland. Post your results.

What American accent do you have? (Best version so far) - Midland

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.

Looks like they changed #15, it's not the same anymore.

I got midland accent too. I really think this quiz focuses way to much on vowel pronunciation. What about how people say "R" or whether or not they use "T" etc?

Whatever.

What American accent do you have? (Best version so far)

My Results:





Canadian

People from outside North America probably think you're from the States, but over here we wouldn't make such a mistake.

I'm a Canadian through & through, eh?

That wasn't literally what #15 was I just thought the question sucked and that this was the point they were trying to make.

I am upset that it's not a very good fake I left the question so much higher up than the rest.
