I took a quiz asking me what kind of American English I speak. These are my results:
60% General American English
10% Upper Midwestern
Interesting. First of all I’m missing 5%. Not sure what that’s supposed to mean. Here’s a look into my background. I was born in Massachusetts (though I don’t remember living there at all), grew up in Arkansas (sorry guys no genuine southern accent here, though it can be realistically faked if needed…but I can’t think of time when it would be), currently living in Utah, and I have lived in Idaho, Hawaii, Mexico, and Guatemala. No wonder I’m all over the board!
