Philadelphia?

This can't be right. I've lived in Houston my whole life. I think this quiz should be asking the question, "Do you read a lot of books?" Reading words is how I make distinctions between vowel sounds. Pen and pin sound completely different to me, for example.

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 got the exact same result and I have lived in Georgia my whole life (minus a brief stint of about 6 months in Texas at the very beginning). I think it's broken. :p

Mine is apparently The Inland East, which sort of makes me go "Eh?" because the closest I've been to the Inland East is... across the Atlantic from it.

Well, mine is correct. It says "Midland," which includes southern Indiana, which is where I'm from. I'm not sure whoever made this quiz has ever actually been to southern Indiana, however, otherwise they would have asked, "Do you pronounce 'wash' with an R?" So many people from my home town say "warsh"--it drives me insane.

I think mine should have been 'Midland,' but it wound up being Philadelphia somehow.

I'm surprised they didn't have a speech pattern that was simply 'Texas,' to be determined by the questions, "How do you say 'How do you do?' and 'oil??'"

oh that's funny! you can come vist, we'd never know you were't from Philly :) I took it and ended up with Philly, which is kind of alarming as I try to not have the accent. ugh!

Ah Ain't No Damnyankee!

Pesky thang tried to accuse me of bein' from the "Inland Nawth". Ain't no way. Ah'm a-gonna have ta track this feller down and a-challenge him to a duel, ah say a duel of honor.

Last person accused me of being a Yankee was a German, slightly tipsy, who screamed at me, "Yankee go home!" He was quite shocked when I agreed with him and told him we'd been trying to get those damnyankees to go home for nearly a hundred and thirty years. Don't think he expected that. :)
