Oh! Where has my southern drawl gone?

I blame the following for the near complete loss of my teensy weensy southern drawl (pronounced “draw-all”):

1) I did not grow up with parents who had very distinct accents (they were not from the south originally)
2) I went to a college where being from Alabama was stigma enough…I didn’t need the accent to go with it.
3) I have not physically heard a southern accent continually since I was 18 years old.
4) I had aspirations of radio broadcasting…and apparently the non-descript non-accent stuck.

I will have to take this quiz again after spending a few days (hours, more likely) in the ‘Bama for the holidays…Oh, and you can ask Kevin. When I go home, it definitely comes out.

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.
