Fun with accents

This was more interesting to me than it may be for others, since my speech was learned in both Arizona and southeast Massachusetts, two accents that could hardly be more different. I remember making a conscious effort not to pick up the Massachusetts accent, because I thought it was goofy. (No offense intended to those who speak that way or live there.) But I went to school in Mass from 6th through 12th grade.

I’ve also lived in Wesconsin and Minnesota from 1990 until last year.

Your Result: The West

Your accent is the lowest common denominator of American speech. Unless you’re a SoCal surfer, no one thinks you have an accent. And really, you may not even be from the West at all, you could easily be from Florida or one of those big Southern cities like Dallas or Atlanta.
