American Accent Quiz
Since we discuss accents and name pronunciation so much here, I thought I'd post this quiz I came across: http://www.gotoquiz.com/what_american_accent_do_you_have
It asks about Mary, merry, marry, as well as don vs dawn, etc.
Here are my results:
"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.
The interesting thing is that I'm from Tennessee, but "The South" ranked very low on my accent rating. All that hard work resisting a redneck drawl paid off :)
What about you? Do you think it's accurate?
