|What American accent do you have? |
Your Result: Philadelphia
Your accent is as Philadelphian as a cheesesteak! If you're not from Philadelphia, then you're from someplace near there like south Jersey, Baltimore, or Wilmington. if you've ever journeyed to some far off place where people don't know that Philly has an accent, someone may have thought you talked a little weird even though they didn't have a clue what accent it was they heard.

I saw this over at Breda's blog and I wanted to see how it turned out for me. I was shocked. Philadelphia? I've been there, and I don't sound anything like them. But the 2nd most likely choice, The South, is more correct, although most tell me that mine is a mild southern--more like a southern Midwestern accent.
Back when I was in college and graduate school, I basically lost my southern drawl. I thought I had to be sophisticated, urbane, and sound similar to a national news anchor.
Well, as I have grown and matured, I have learned to say 'The HELL with that. If they don't like my accent, they don't like me. This is who I am. It's how I was raised, take it or leave it.'
Sooooo, you are likely to hear much more of a southern drawl out of me today than at any other time since I was in high school.
Oh, and one more thing for all you Yankees out there (that's anyone in the country who doesn't live in the South), y'all just don't know how to tawk. So don't be a-telling me nothing about no accent, cuz I ain't got one! Y'all are the ones with the accent! (he he).
And don't be a-makin' fun of my drawl either, cuz I ain't gone put up with it!
YE GOT IT????
Ok, so I am drinking German dark beer and smoking my pipe tonight (with some fine tobacco shop blend)...I am not responsible for anything written here tonight.
