Guess Where I'm From

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: North Central

"North Central" is what professional linguists call the Minnesota accent. If you saw "Fargo" you probably didn't think the characters sounded very out of the ordinary. Outsiders probably mistake you for a Canadian a lot.

What American accent do you have?

Considering I spent my first 14 years in South Dakota, the next four in Wisconsin, back to South Dakota for 2 years, then Minnesota for three, Wisconsin for 1, Minnesota for 6 more months, then Wisconsin for the last four, I'd say that this pegged me somewhat accurately. My Wisconsin friends say I have a Minnesota accent, but my South Dakota relatives say that I sound like someone from Wisconsin.

Have a happy New Year!
