The NY Times has a quiz online that you can take and it’ll tell you which area in the US you most likely have an accent from…  That sentence seems overly complicated.  Some of the questions are about pronunciation, others are about phrases/terms that you use.  This is a snapshot of my results:


I’ve lived all over the place, including overseas.  My parents are from the midwest.  So, I’m not really surprised by this result.

Sidenote that has NOTHING to do with this: I really dislike people using my bathroom when they have their own bathroom in the house… The only room I have with a door is my half bath.  Use your own damn bathroom. Thanks.

Anyway, have fun with the quiz thingy!  🙂
