What American accent do you have?

Your Result: Philadelphia


Your accent is as Philadelphian as a cheesesteak! If you’re not from Philadelphia, then you’re from someplace near there like south Jersey, Baltimore, or Wilmington. if you’ve ever journeyed to some far off place where people don’t know that Philly has an accent, someone may have thought you talked a little weird even though they didn’t have a clue what accent it was they heard.

The Midland


The Inland North


The Northeast


The South




The West

My theory is that education would tend to affect the regional accent one grew up with. At least, I’d think it’d explain why my accent came off in this on-line quiz as from Philadelphia (my Brooklynese isn’t nearly as thick as it was when I was a kid).
