You can take the girl out of western New York...

I found this over at Big Stupid Tommy's, and it pegged my hometown quite well. Even though I've lived below the Manson-Nixon line for over twenty years now, southerners still think I sound like a yankee. (But when I go home to visit, people remark on my southern drawl. Go figure.)





Northern


You have a Northern accent. That could either be the
Chicago/Detroit/Cleveland/Buffalo accent (easily recognizable)
or the Western New England accent that news networks go for.

Neutral here. All american mutt. Funny thing, for someone who's lived her whole life in Texas.

I get the Mid-Atlantic or "Philadelphia" accent. That's pretty accurate.

alice said...

srav -- Dear Daughter also got "neutral" and she's lived in the south her whole life. I wonder what it takes to ping "southern" or "texas" (if indeed they're among the results)?



John -- I love the Philly/North Jersey accent, as that's where I went to college (near Harrisburg, PA). It's puts a very unique twist on vowels (I suspect that's why that question about the word "horrible" is there)...

I am a neutral, that's pronounced newtrull.

Keera said...

I got neutral. I figure it's because I had a New York mother, a New England grandmother and a Nebraskan father, and I am Californian.

They do seem to have improved it from the last time I took it. It used to peg me as some sort of Canadian because of a thing or two I get from my Tidewater Virginia side of my family.

Now it gets me as "neutral", which I suspect is really what they use for "can't figure you out".

I took it and it says I sound like you...either it's wrong or I don't know what I sound like...
