Spot on!

What American accent do you have? (Best version so far)

Northern

You have a Northern accent. That could either be the Chicago/Detroit/Cleveland/Buffalo accent (easily recognizable) or the Western New England accent that news networks go for.

Haha, I got northeastern - NY, CT, RI areas. Unfortunately for the quizmakers I speak 'straylyan.

Mid Atlantic

Also known as a "Philadelphia accent" but also heard in south Jersey, Baltimore, and thereabouts.

And that's where I live.

I've been practising and it's not 'straylyan, it's 'strayan. Cos I live in Straya. That's the official pronunciation. :)

hehehe. See, julie, you did score right! You'd fit right in in Bahstahn.

That is uncanny, cassie!

Bost'n, with a very short o, as in lost.

Shirl said...

but how do you say lost????

We say lawst.

Bet you say lahst.

Julie said...

If I came last I'd say lahst. Lost is the same o as in cost, frost, etc. I suppose it's the English o.

Shirl said...

hmmm. I'm lawst. *grin*
