When I traveled to Boston, Tupelo, Orlando, Atlanta, Columbus, and Grand Rapids, the locals I talked to said I didn’t have an accent, or at least not much of one. I heard their accents clearly, though. I always wondered why that was, and I attributed it to the fact that I’m a California native, and a lot of the television shows and movies are made here. As a result, people elsewhere probably hear California accents much more frequently than I hear their accents.
I took the “What American accent do you have?” quiz, and it said I have a “Western Accent” (go figure). It also says that it’s pretty much a neutral accent. I’m not sure exactly how an accent can be neutral, but it does seem to match my experiences when traveling.
|What American accent do you have? (Best version so far)Western
Western is kind of neutral, but not quite since it’s still possible to tell where you`re from. So you might not actually be from the West (but you probably are). If you really want to sound “neutral,” learn how to say “stock” and “stalk” differently.
