What American accent do you have?
Created by Xavier on Memegen.net

Midland. The Midland (please don’t confuse with "Midwest") itself is the neutral zone between the North and South. But just because you have a Midland accent doesn’t mean you’re from there. Since it is considered a neutral, default, "non-regional" accent you could easily be from someplace without its own accent, like Florida, or a big city in the South like Dallas, Houston, or Atlanta.

Take this quiz now – it’s easy!
We’re going to start with "cot" and "caught." When you say those words do they sound the same or different?

    I beg to differ with their yellow line, I reckon that folks south of Chicago [at least in Illinois] tend to have a tinge of Southern in their speech.

    So much so that I call anything south of the Chicago burbs and west of Rockford … “Southern Illinois”…
