Chicagoans Don't Have An Accent

I generally don't go in much for quizzes, but this one hit it right on the nose.

Despite having lived in the south for more than three decades, my accent still carries its Chicago roots. --though I can speak Texan when necessary. :o)

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Inland North

You may think you speak "Standard English straight out of the dictionary" but when you step away from the Great Lakes you get asked annoying questions like "Are you from Wisconsin?" or "Are you from Chicago?" Chances are you call carbonated drinks "pop."

The Northeast

Philadelphia

The Midland

The South

Boston

The West

North Central

Haha! OMGosh - "pop," yes! I exclaimed to my parents while watching THE MIDDLE recently: "Hey, they said 'pop!' The writers got it right." Glad you enjoyed the quiz.

When I first moved to Texas, I asked a clerk in a grocery store where the pop was. He looked at me like I came from Mars.

LOL... down south isn't "pop" (or "soda" as I call it) called "coke"? Cuz Coke is co-cola ... yes?

Anyway, I took this today and it got me spot on.
