Haya Doon, Y'all?

Goddammit, I've lived in the South my whole life, and I end up with a "Midland" accent? (Though the "big southern cities" bit is dead-on, I guess.)

I blame TV. But then, I apparently should be working in it, too.

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Midland

"You have a Midland accent" is just another way of saying "you don't have an accent." You probably are from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri) but then for all we know you could be from Florida or Charleston or one of those big southern cities like Atlanta or Dallas. You have a good voice for TV and radio.
