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.
Western for me.

Northern - what y'all wish you had.
In search of what to search for.
Western. I would be neutral if I learned to say stalk and stock differently.
I didn't know that a Canadian accent was considerd an American accent.
neutral??? how the hell can i be neutral?? have they never heard wp speak??? it's sure as hell NOT neutral - it's about as southern sounding as one can get. sheesh.
They have me as neutral too. Bet they think that crap you hear on TV is a real Southern accent.
they must, cuz, i'm no where near neutral.
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.......
I guess i do have a website http://iwentoutside.com/

"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!
Would love to explore where you live.
ah.......then you really do know the hickory/conover/newton sound...
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.
deep deep deep east accent.
