What American accent do you have?
Created by Xavier on Memegen.net

New York City. You are most definitely from New York City. Not New Jersey, not Connecticut. If you are from Jersey then you can probably get into New York City in 10 minutes or less.

Take this quiz now - it's easy!
We're going to start with "cot" and "caught." When you say those words do they sound the same or different?





Um. New York is at least an eight-hour flight away...

Southern. Love it or hate it, your accent says you're probably from somewhere south of the Ohio River.

If you're not from the South, you probably were overanalyzing the questions. Take the quiz again but don't think so hard next time.

Different
Same, no wait I mean different, maybe, a little bit different...
Same


Dead on.

Well, it does say "American", and you're rather distant from any region here. ;-P

What's the more popular superdialect to learn in Norway, British or American?

Depends entirely on the teacher you get. I was taught British, and I've stuck to that, but most of my class ended up with the American deviance because it's what they see most around them.

NY ..Jersey? ...

oh come on, no way do I sound like that.
I have heard Americans who sound British, but they werent New Yorkers ... Boston maybe. And Im sure I now have at least some Aus in my speech - my local UK accent was very like Aus in its flatness, but other UK people can still pick that Im English, even if they dont know what county Im from.

Re: NY ..Jersey? ...

Maybe NY people sound British-ish?

New York City??

...Get a rope.


(Ok, you may have never seen the commercial. Do a YouTube search for "Pace New York rope". Maybe. Posting from my CrackBerry, so I can't search.)

I got Southern. Which, doesn't surprise me. Even though I was born in NY, raised by a family who grew up in NY, I talk like a Southern gal. However, I still talk as fast as a NY, so it's weird. I have a mile-a-minute southern accent that no one can understand.
