|I admit that I can be easily entertained at times:) Being from Philly, I say some things a little differently…like "coffee" as "cawfee" or every now and then "water" comes out as "wooder". This can happen especially after a full weekend with my parents and my brother Todd. Todd’s a Philly accent maniac! Don’t even get me started on my aunts who live on the other side of the river in Jersey:)
Then there’s my Detroit accent (not to be confused with the slight Michigan accent) that comes out, especially when I’m talking about my students, or telling stories from school. My roommate really likes to make fun of me when I start talkin’ like I actually have some "soul" in me:) She says that the "black’s comin’ out!"
But let’s not forget that I spent 5 years in Minnesota, where my favorite line was, "What are you talkin’ (pronounced ‘taakin’) about (pronounced ‘a boat’)?" or Minnesoooota.
All those jumbled up together give me these results on my accent test…
What American accent do you have?

This is scarily accurate!
I got “The Inland North,” (i.e., Wisconsin, Chicago) and it said that I probably think I speak standard English, but when I step away from home, I get annoying questions about why I call soda “pop.”
haha I just did the quiz too. I got “The Inland North” also (which makes sense because I’ve grown up in Michigan).
It read my talk.
I am the same with the both of you-Inland North! I strongly believe that we speak proper English straight from the dictionary!
Everyone else needs to an English lesson from us.
