Right on

I've taken these accent tests before and gotten some wacky results. This one nailed it; at least, it nailed my birthplace (and where I learned to talk). I don't think I sound particularly like I'm out of the movie Fargo or anything, especially when compared to my step-mom who totally does but I did find that I blended in pretty well when I moved to Canada. The only time I was caught out as an American by the way I spoke was when I said "roof" (which my Canadian friends all tend to draw out "oooo" while I say it closer to "ruhf").

Nice work, test makers!

What American accent do you have?

North Central. This is what everyone calls a "Minnesota accent." If you saw "Fargo" or "Drop Dead Gorgeous" you probably didn't think the characters sounded very out of the ordinary. Some Americans may mistake you for a Canadian.

Canada. You probably get irritated when British people and Europeans think you're from the States, but over here we wouldn't make a mistake like that.

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?

And I came away with the Western "neutral" accent.
