Hop on pop

I don't usually post these quizzes, but it's not often that one can have me pegged so well, and in just 13 questions.

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Inland North

You may think you speak "Standard English straight out of the dictionary" but when you step away from the Great Lakes you get asked annoying questions like "Are you from Wisconsin?" or "Are you from Chicago?" Chances are you call carbonated drinks "pop."

The Midland
The Northeast
The South
The West

  1. I took a quiz like this almost a year ago (here), along with a lof my family and you, BZ (see comments to that post). I wonder if this one has the same questions or not. (I know it's not the same quiz.)

  2. BTW, "lof" is a new, quicker way of writing "lot of." I just decided that after I posted this last comment. Makese sense, doesn't it?

  3. Maybe in BOSTON English it makes sense.

  4. I'm so proud!

    "You definitely have a Boston accent, even if you think you don't..."

    I'm so much of a Bostonian I don't even know what the "Midland" is.

  5. I just did it and then made my mother do it got us both right on (although it got mine backwards...said that I am from Minnesota and get mistaken for a Canadian...I guess now I am a Candian mistaken for a Minnesotan)
