Do you say y'all or you guys? Have you ever heard of a "Roly poly"? Ever been to a "beer barn"? Do you drink cola, pop, or soda? Find out what American accent you have!

Western
You have a Western accent - and all of this time you probably thought you didn't have an accent at all! The Western dialect of American English is a single regional dialect that unites the entire western half of the United States, including California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, and Wyoming, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana! The west was the last area in the United States to be settled during the westward expansion of English-speaking people and it's full of linguistic patterns from other regions. Your accent is general enough that no one knows exactly where you're from. Your accent is perfect for public speaking, news broadcasting, acting, advertisements, etc.!

It said Northeastern

I'm from Philadelphia so I already knew I had a accent. I live in in Midwest now and people are always asking me where I'm from.

If I answer how I grew up I get Midwest, if I answer now I get Western.

In reality I'm a mix of the 2.

Just as I thought heh


Southern
You have a southern accent! You're shocked that people think "pin" and "pen" are pronounced differently, and you find it bizarre that people actually call coke "pop"! And of course, your day isn't complete without saying "ya'll"! The Southern dialects make up the largest accent group in the United States! You might be made fun of if you ever head up north, but pay no attention and take pride in your warm, charming accent!

"You have the Midland accent! Sometimes just called "Midwestern" but distinct from your friends up north who have the "North Central" or "Upper Midwest" accent. "

Which is a little funny considering that I'm from TEXAS.
