Having lived on both sides of the Mason Dixon line, I often get the "Oh, you're from Oklahoma? I can hear your accent." Most of the time I think people are pretending to hear something that's not there. My voice tends to fluctuate depending on who I hang out with. My Minnesotan friends have blessed me with a longer "o." And my Chicagoan friends have given me a longer "a." But being from Oklahoma, I still call my mom "Momma."

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.

I have the same accent too, although "Southern" was just as strong.... weird how that happens!
