My American Accent!

Some people believe that there is a region in the United States which is very unique. Its uniqueness is due to the fact that people from there speak English without any accent.

Do you believe this story? Me? I do not believe it. I cannot believe it. Not for all the gold in the world. It is totally understandable that everyone has his or her own accent. Generally, people's accent shows that which country or part of the country they come from. As a result, the story which has been spread by some rumormongers is an out-and-out gossip. To my mind, those guys must take some courses on linguistics to revise their knowledge.

Let me tell you something weird and somehow interesting. I took a small quiz to realize what American accent I have. Here is the result:

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Northeast

Judging by how you talk you are probably from north Jersey, New York City, Connecticut or Rhode Island. Chances are, if you are from New York City (and not those other places) people would probably be able to tell if they actually heard you speak.

The Inland North
The Midland
The South
North Central
The West
