Accent? I Don't Have an Accent!

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."

Meh...I don't have an accent either, though I checked in a "Philadelphia."

Which is, of course, right on the money!!

I'm Midland -- which is to say I _really_ don't have an accent -- so says the Quizmaster. But I call carbonated beverages "Beer" -- or "Soda" if they're not carbonated! But a water fountain is not a bubbler and a grouping of bedroom furniture is a "suite" = "sweet", not a suit.

Now throw me down the stairs my hat.

I'm Cha's foreign student roomie her junior year at college, and my Danish accent rendered me The Inland North, pop and all.

I guess that's what living in South Dakota for one year (regardless of how many years ago that was) will get you, Ane!
