The way we speak

I stumbled upon this quiz the other day while surfing the net, thought I share the results with you:


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

Neutral

You're not Northern, Southern, or Western, you`re just plain -American-. Your national identity is more important than your local identity, because you don`t really have a local identity. You might be from the region in that map, which is defined by this kind of accent, but you could easily not be. Or maybe you just moved around a lot growing up.

Wow! This quiz is dead on. I was born in Indiana lived there for five years. Then moved to New York and lived in Queens for two years. Then moved again out to Long Island and lived there for twelve years. If you are familiar with the socio-economic condition of these localities you would know why I would have been exposed to different types of accents, growing up.

I want to know the story behind your accent.

UPDATE: Check out the stir this quiz caused over at Jim Wright's Stonekettle Station. Thanks for the shout out man!
