Here’s a fun quiz that I just took. I’ve been told that sometimes I sound Southern (mainly when I’m in the South) and sometimes I sound “Northern” (but I don’t think so…).
Your accent is the lowest common denominator of American speech. Unless you’re a SoCal surfer, no one thinks you have an accent. And really, you may not even be from the West at all, you could easily be from Florida or one of those big Southern cities like Dallas or Atlanta.
