I don't have an accent!

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."

"Pop" has never meant anything but music and what one of the Rice Krispies elves says on the commercials. It's either soda or soft drink in Boston! :)

I have a Midland accent...lol, that's funny because I'm from California!

And it's soda...or coke : )

Happy Birthday Scott!!!

I have the Midland accent...but anything fizzy in Kentucky is either a Coke (or a beer)...or as my husband calls it, a carbonated beverage!

Christy said...

It is not Pop! It is coke or my fave DP (dr. pepper)--yeah I'm a texas gal!

I have a Midland accent which means I 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.

Haha I think I lost my accent when I moved to Cali, but sometimes it still comes out. ;)

Am disappointed I have a Midland accent as well, especially since "y'all" is one of my core vocabulary words.

Here it's a coke. Doesn't matter if it's Pepsi, Coke, or Dr. Pepper, it's called a coke. Unless it's a Big Red. Which I don't think any other area of the country has.

To others who appear to be from different areas of the country - my personal pet peeve is "ant" and "aunt". I say two completely different pronunciations - what say all of you?

Carrie - I totally agree with you!! 'Ant' and 'Aunt' are totally different!!!

Rhonda said...

To me they are both the same...aunt and ant.
