I don’t have an accent

Though I’m a lifelong Californian, when I lived in Sacramento I was occasionally asked if I grew up in the midwest. Lots of us speak like midwesterners in this part of the state.

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.

  1. “You have a good voice for TV and radio.”

    Uh-huh. And who first pointed this out?

  2. Yes, I remember that. Since quite a few others have told me the same thing there must be something to it. But I’m not sure how this accent questionnaire figured that out. I prefer smokers’ voices myself.
