Yo, So How Do Youse Guys Toowak?

Here is a nifty quiz that, based on your answers, will tell you what kind of accent, if any, you have.

People have told me that I speak with a New Jersey accent, and the results of this test are in agreement with those people.

Obviously those people and this test are insane.

Swiped from Denny.


  1. I got neutral. It said it’s probably from my moving around a lot as a kid. That said, I pick up accents easily. I can mostly blend wherever I am.

  2. Too funny – it was accurate! Northern Midwest. Too funny.

  3. Nailed it – Northern (If it were a better quiz, it would’ve pegged me as “Wisconsin”, because I use the word “bubbler” to describe a drinking fountain, and I refer to the popular tourist destination as “The Dells”)

  4. Northern. See, no “joisey” accent. There was another test floating around which resulted in me having a “Philly” accent. Strange, since I grew up in Fords, NJ, near Perth Amboy.

  5. Come on, we don’t have accents. That quiz ain’t for us — it’s for all the peeps who do have accents.

  6. “Which American accent do you have?


    You`re not Northern, Southern, or Western, you`re just plain -American-. Your national identity is more important than your local identity, because you don`t really have a local identity. You might be from the region in that map, which is defined by this kind of accent, but you could easily not be. Or maybe you just moved around a lot growing up.”

    23 years in Ohio, 34 in central Florida. Makes sense.

  7. I’m neutral too.

  8. For some strange reason, it tagged me as having a Northeastern accent. Imagine that…
