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

Judging by how you talk you are probably from north Jersey, New York City, Connecticut or Rhode Island. Chances are, if you are from New York City (and not those other places) people would probably be able to tell if they actually heard you speak.

This is actually the first one of these I've taken that indicated where I'm actually from (Rhode Island, but even just the northeast would be good enough). That's probably because it didn't ask about the ways I differ from many people in the northeast but just about ways I'm with the northeast in differing from people in other parts of the country.

I should note that one question didn't have any right answer. It asked about the words 'Mary', 'merry', and 'marry'. You could choose (a) All three sound different, (b) 'Mary' and 'merry' sound the same but 'marry' is different from them, or (c) All three sound the same. The way I learned to talk, 'Mary' and 'marry' sound exactly the same, but 'merry' sounds extremely different. That wasn't an option. I chose (a), because that was better than (b) or (c), since 'Mary' and 'merry' really don't sound anything alike, so much that it struck me as much worse to indicate that. Other than that, this was probably the best accent test I've seen.
