Beyond the words used, the regional accents are also interesting. I recently took a quick survey someone had set up on a web site that supposedly analyzes what American accent you have based upon a series of questions. I really don't know how accurate it is, but what I did find interesting is the comment in the results that said:
You have a good voice for TV and radio.
Considering my first career was in radio, that makes sense. Now, I'll be the first to admit that in casual conversation, I don't pay quite as much attention to diction and pronunciation as I did on the air, but still think I speak fairly standard American English without any of the affectations of regional accents.
In any case, here were my results.
|What American accent do you have? |
Your Result: The Midland
|The Inland North|
