Well, this has been rather a long hiatus. I have been submerged by school, and reading and writing for non-academic purposes has been the furthest thing from my mind. In the next few weeks, however, I hope to have posts with more content than this one.

I found this quiz through The Little Professor.

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

"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.

The South


The Northeast

The Inland North

The West

What American accent do you have?

Interestingly enough, my results were the same as hers, though it's not because I've lived in the Midwest. And although my accent itself may be neutral, my habitual use of "y'all" definitely pegs me as a Southerner.
