    From a different forum:

    Most Similar Cities
    1 Santa Rosa CA 61.8
    2 Fairfield CA 61.6
    3 Fort Collins CO 61.4
    4 Roseville CA 61.4
    5 Vallejo CA 61.3

    I took the long one and I think it's pretty neat. I grew up in Dallas but my parents were both raised in Denver, so I'm not surprised FoCo is on there and all of Colorado is very red. All of the CA results are interesting. I've never been to any part of CA.

    Aw the quiz is closed. I'm pretty sure I have a Colorado accent (if that's even a thing?) since I grew up here.

    I kinda wanted to take it too. Except I already know I'm apparently "very Midwestern." Which I'm pretty sure is what my friends say when they want to call me stupid.

    Oh no, now I feel like a huge jerk! I took it a few days ago and didn't look before posting it here. I'll have to keep an eye on it and repost when it's back up!

    I took this a while ago. It came up very Jersey, and some Florida. I grew up in Jersey, but moved to Florida in my teens. I no longer have my Jersey 'accent' to a big degree, but the phrases I use must still be Jersey. Although, there are still times when I'm super tired I find that my 'Jersey' comes out LOL.

    Oh drat! I would've like to have taken it too!

    I was born in Northern Indiana, my parents were born and raised in Kentucky, 1/2 my childhood was spent back and forth between Northern Indiana and Northern Ohio (with a few other places thrown in now and then) while the second 1/2 was spent in Phoenix area Arizona! :eek: I would be very interested to see where I fall! hahaha

    I could answer this but you probably won't have a clue....

    Mine is East Yorkshire, with a twang of merseyside, and... I think that's it, but I now live in Wales and work in Shropshire! They are all completely different accents.

    I use many Yorkshire terms, but not as many as I used to. For example, cor I'm mafting, giz a croggie and we will go buy ice creams. Actually, I hardly ever say croggie as I have no need too :D lol

    I use some welsh words, but only with the other half. Sws is kiss. Cwtch is cuddle. Uch y fi means urgh lol.

    I'm a proper mongrel.

    Here is another link. Not sure if its the same but its similar.
    http://www.gotoquiz.com/what_american_accent_do_you_have


    My results
    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."

    Which is no surpise, considering I was born and raised in MI and still live here. LOL Only been out of the state a handful of times.

    Your Result: The Midland

    95%

    "You have a Midland accent" is just another way of saying "you don't have an accent." You probably are from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri) but then for all we know you could be from Florida or Charleston or one of those big southern cities like Atlanta or Dallas. You have a good voice for TV and radio.

    Interesting. I did grow up in a large southern city and often think I just have no accent/generic american accent.

    Mine is 100% Boston according to the quiz. Which makes sense considering I'm born and raised in Mass.
