Well looky here......... this is what it said about my accent and I wonder why???? Laughing

"North Central" is what professional linguists call the Minnesota accent. If you saw "Fargo" you probably didn't think the characters sounded very out of the ordinary. Outsiders probably mistake you for a Canadian a lot.

You may think you speak "Standard English straight out of the dictionary" but when you step away from the Great Lakes you get asked annoying questions like "Are you from Wisconsin?" or "Are you from Chicago?" Chances are you call carbonated drinks "pop."

I always lived near the great lakes, never more then 45 minutes from one of the lakes actually. Very Happy

OK, so it pegged me as a southerer but it says noting about my accent. Actually, I don't think is have one. But some other folks do sound funny. Always wondered why they didn't speak plain English, like me and my family/friends. ???

Thats what I got too Bushmaster,

Funny thing is people I know have probably listed every European accent as being mine at one time or another. Very Happy Some odd ball accents were mentioned to date. wtf

Apparently the mix of a accent I got from speaking English, French and Greek throws people off. Very Happy

Looks like it might have been correct. Said I was from the Inland North.
A couple miles North, I would have been in Canada, then I guess I would have been in the Inland South. Didn't know a couple of miles made all that much differece.--tr
