The Power of the Spoken Word

I saw this quiz on my friend Andrea's blog. Since my degree is in English and my senior course had me contemplating that maybe I should have been a linguistics major, I thought this would be fun. I laughed at the results. I am Canadian, I'm moving to Fargo, and possibly the Minnesota side. Go figure eh?

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: North Central

"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.

how fun! I tried it and ended up in the Midland category - which makes sense since I grew up in the Midwest (and live here now).
