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

Northern. Whether you have the world famous Inland North accent of the Great Lakes area, or the radio-friendly sound of upstate NY and western New England, your accent is what used to set the standard for American English pronunciation (not much anymore now that the Inland North sounds like it does).

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'm northern also. Some of the questiopned seemed crazy to me. Who would say "He cot the ball?" Or "I need to write a check, do you have a pin?"

New Englanders, in the first case, and Oklahomans through to the central southeast, I believe, in the second.
