Answer all the questions to see your personal dialect map. It took me less than 10 min. and it was right on target.

All NY...my husband says my accent is comparable to Carrie from King of Queens, especially when I talk fast or get excited.

NJ and MD for me. I have never lived in NJ and only briefly in MD.

Right on the money. All Detroit!

Very interesting. I never thought of myself as talking like a "Detroiter", it just sounds right to me ;)

 I am most compatible with Baltimore and two cities in Virginia. Interesting since I'm from NC

Yeah, it says "Milwaukee"....grew up in Waukesha, about 40 minutes West of there, so I guess that's right on.

St. Louis, Overland Park, and Springfield.  Considering I was born and raised in St. Louis, this quiz is right on!
