apparently, i have an accent —

January 10, 2007

and i don’t just mean ‘american!’. i’m actually pretty excited about this. i always thought my speech pattern was pretty nondescript, but either a) everyone who takes this quiz gets ‘philadelphia’ as their place of origin (take it, and prove me wrong!), or b) those 18 years growing up in and just outside of philadelphia really did have an impact.

i wonder if i’ll ever transition over to ‘southern’ or whether i’m philadelphia to stay. i am more likely to say ‘y’all’ than ‘youse’ but only, like, ironically.

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.
