What American Accent Do I Have?

Today I have something very interesting to share – me talking. I took this quiz to determine what American accent I have. Even though I already know my accent, this way you get to hear it too – because I videoed myself taking the quiz! I hate the sound of my voice on video, and I messed up a few times because Simon was interrupting me, but I’m not doing it over, sorry! There are two parts – the first is just me introducing myself and the second is the actual quiz.

Don’t laugh too much at my awkwardness! Now go take the quiz and tell me where your accent is from! Video it yourself and then come back to link up on October 3rd!

Just more we have in common, because I think my accent sounds quite similar to your having lived in Queens, NY for 14 years and then moved to Long Island. I loved finally hearing your voice and thanks for sharing this great quiz with us. If I get a few moments,I would love to try!! :)

if you do record it, I am thinking of having a link up to people's vlogs of it!

Janine Huldie said...

Now that sounds like a challenge and have to see what I can come up with if I ever have some free, quiet time!! :)

Dara said...

yeah, my quiet moment was interrupted by Simon saying "who are you talking to??"

Dara said...

NY and NJ accents are similar, yeah?

I totally have to take this test! My hubby (from KC) thinks I have a funny Northern accent. Apparently my o's are very oooooo-ish. :)
I can hear a little of your Jersey accent, love it!

Alex said...

Totally a Jersey girl! This is an awesome test! I think I might do a blog post just like this one!

Dara said...

if you video it, I want to do a link up of vlogs of it!

Dara said...

if you do, I want to do a link up of vlogs of it!

Alex said...

You should definitely start a linkup for this!! I always love hearing what other bloggers sound like.

Dara said...

want to help me with that? :)

Alex said...

I'd love to!! What would you like for me to do?

Dara said...

I probably should have made this post an announcement for a link up but I didn't. so I guess I need help spreading the word, and then hosting a link up whenever we decide to do so. email me!

I loved this! Getting to see your pretty face and voice of course :) I played along with you when you read the questions and said the words and I say EVERYTHING the same as you lol. Probably pretty accurate, because I live in southern NY near Jersey. But...I'm from south central PA. I might have to do this test and post it, too.

I've seen that quiz - so funny. I have a South Jersey accent for sure. Wauder for water, no g's on many words, etc!


I have a friend from Atlanta with NO accent except on like 2 random words and he is convinced I say daughter in a "northern" accent lol

Dara said...

Dara said...

Dara said...

Dara said...

great, I'm glad you will be linking up!

Melissa Lea-Wood said...

Lol I wonder what I would get :) I hate my voice on tape too, I think everyone does. Do you know they all sound the same to me.

Dara said...

if they all sound the same, it tells you that you have no real accent. that's what Gabbie got too!

Holly Higgins said...

When we lived in Philly I had to say soda because everyone looked at my like I was nuts when I said pop :-)

Shane Prather said...

Dara said...

that's weird! :)

Megan Hall said...

What a fun link up! Mine is totally different from yours, but I'm from the South. If I can figure out how to video myself and put it up, I'll link up.

Dara said...

Oh, I loved getting to hear your voice. It's so lovely. Now I can "hear" you when I read your posts. :-) I wonder if the quiz will detect where I'm from. lol
