It pegged me (correctly) as Canadian, however, I do have a bit of an American "twang" due to being raised by my mother who was born and raised in Idaho.

That was fun!
Northern for me.

Interesting, since I was born in Virginia, spent the first 5 years of life up and down the East Coast, then was 'reared' in Austin, Tx. - noted for its accentual (real word?) neutrality. Since then, I've lived in 3 other countries and many states.

I'm a calico. Hmmm is the 'northern' accent the calico cat of the US accents?

Not sure. Bronx <> Boston <> Chicago <> rural vermont <> Minnesotan

is it a catch all? Hmmm.......

North Central

"What people call the "Minnesota accent." Sounds almost Canadian. You may have even been asked if you were from Canada before."


Funny... as many Canadians ask me "where are you from" or think I am from the Maritimes.

the australian kind of US accent, unlike my brother who has lived in Indiana for 15 years. he tries to speak with the aussie accent while talking to me, ha, its funny.

To most people down here (regretabley alot are pretty thick down here) yes the canadian accent is considered american.
sometimes the irish accent gets mitaken for american too!

I missed an annual camping trip to the red centre this year. I'll have to wait 'till next year. Until then, I'll have swag envy, and I'll long for the sublime night sky...............

Weird. The quiz says I have a Mid-Atlantic accent, but I'm pretty sure I had a somewhat valley-girl Californian one. Oh well.
