your result : northeastern

your accent is basically what people speak with around the Tri-state area (New York city ,north Jersey ,Cinnecticut) and Rhode island.

If NewYork city is the gereatest city in the world it's not too much of a stretch to say you have the greatest accent in the world !!! Emotion: embarrassed
PuccaMy result was.. Northeastern Emotion: thinking
So was mine. I guess this one has more in common with a British pronunciation than other American accents.

Maybe with a little readjusting here and there we could pass for New Yorkers if need be (of course, we'd have to work on our l's, r's and t's for a start).

What American accent do you really have?
Your Result: Northern
Your accent is Northern, which used to be the media standard in the '50s and '60s. Your accent could either be Inland Northern (Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland, Buffalo) or the more broadcasting-friendly Upstate NY/Western New England accent. If you have the Inland North accent, outsiders probably ask you a lot if you're from Chicago or Wisconsin.
