Accentuate the whatever...

Got this from fara_shimbo

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.

Offhand, I'd guess the author of this thing has never been to California, because that's also the way we talk out here.

hahaha, I'm not american but I took the quiz anyway; I got Midland, which, since I'm canadian, and obviously don't have an accent (lol), made perfect sense.

Not surprising here, either
My father was raised in Illinois, my mother in Northern KY just across the river from Ohio, I lived 6 years in Pittsburgh PA, and of course television is pretty much Midland as well - so I've had a lot of Midland influences. Also, as as Kay says, California (24 years, San Jose and San Diego and San Jose again) is pretty close to Midland in speech. So a bit of the State of Washington and a bit more of upstate New York didn't pull me off-center.
