Yo! I’m from Philly!

I don’t do these kind of quizzes often, but this is right on.  And judging by my lack of any hint of a North Central accent, no wonder I couldn’t understand my co-workers when I worked for a company based in Minneapolis . . .

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.

    Looks like the test was pretty acurate for me too. One thing I noticed that and other in the northeast is the way you pronounce “adult”. Northeasters usually pronounce it “add-dult” while Mid-Westerners usually go with with “uh-dult”. I would acutally get comments sometimes like “You sound Canadian” or “Are you from the movie Fargo?”
