Quiz: What American Accent Do You Have

via Geoffrey Chaucer

Wow. These guys pegged me... I am in Philadelphia after all.

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: Philadelphia
 

Your accent is as Philadelphian as a cheesesteak! If you're not from Philadelphia, then you're from someplace near there like south Jersey, Baltimore, or Wilmington. if you've ever journeyed to some far off place where people don't know that Philly has an accent, someone may have thought you talked a little weird even though they didn't have a clue what accent it was they heard.

The Midland
 
The Inland North
 
The South

Hi, surprisingly (?) I turned out as the Inland North. With a touch of Scottish origin...

You could be a secret agent just like Connery, and nobody would be able to guess where you're from... :P

For some reason I would like to have Simon Pegg's accent. I love how he says "skip to the end" in that first episode of "Spaced." I also like his exasperated "alright" that he uses in "Spaced" and "Shuan of the Dead."

He does have a good one. I've been trying on Dame Judi Dench, but I can't get enough haughty going. But the best accents have to be in "Boondock Saints".... "I'm strangely comfortable with that!"

Murphy: So you're Chekov, huh? Well, this here's McCoy. Find a Spock, we got us an away team.

I'll have to watch it again this weekend.
