It's Official - I Have An Accent...

This was a fun little quiz to take - I've been told that I have a Midwest accent, but I guess this makes it official! (Although I still don't say "tree" for "three" or "sixt" for sixth.) I guess that would be the mobbed-up version of the Chicago accent.

It is so true that "I (do) think I speak Standard English straight from the dictionary". I also grew up calling carbonated drinks "pop" but somewhere along the line started calling them "soda". My mother (from the Cape Cod area of the East Coast originally) told me that she grew up calling carbonated drinks "tonic". So weird...

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."
