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.

My results are here.

I had the same top 4 as you, only South swapped with Inland North.
This makes sense, except for the "Philadelphia" part.
I was raised in Texas, but by Yankees: mom was from Kansas, dad from Indiana.

If they'd asked how many syllables "hell" contains, I might have wound up with The South on top.

It says "Northeast," followed by Philadelphia, Inland North and Midlands. I don't know how much self-consciousness in how I pronounce things played into that, though...

Odd thing: I've never really known how to classify my accent, other than "not from around here." My dad came from east Texas originally, my mom from England -- and she'd been naturalized 20 years when she had me. Her accent had softened enough that it wasn't obviously British -- just, as I said, "not from around here."
