Yet another quiz!

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Inland North

You may think you speak "Standard English straight out of the dictionary" but when you step away from the Great Lakes you get asked annoying questions like "Are you from Wisconsin?" or "Are you from Chicago?" Chances are you call carbonated drinks "pop."

The interesting thing to me is that I did not grow up in the "Inland North" - but my parents did. One from Minnesota and one from Chicago. My mom doesn't have the Minnesota accent, but she can't hear it in others, either. I had someone tell me once that I had just a trace of that accent - perhaps they were right after all!
