Nah, nah, na, nah, nah!!

Okay, for all you who 'assume' I have an 'Okie' accent--and especially those of you who read my blog and 'hear' an Okie accent in your head. STOP THAT! :-)

Seriously, I've been told various times throughout my life by people in other regions of the country, "You don't sound like an Okie!". Why, thank you! But I was born, bred, and raised in Oklahoma by parents who are born, bred and raised Okies! Go figure! :-)

Side note: The really funny thing is our Russian-born (native speaking) daughters are picking up an Okie accent!!! Now THAT's just wrong--and really quite cute!


What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Midland

"You have a Midland accent" is just another way of saying "you don't have an accent." You probably are from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri) but then for all we know you could be from Florida or Charleston or one of those big southern cities like Atlanta or Dallas. You have a good voice for TV and radio.

I was the same, The Midland. Originally from Ohio but been in Fl for 25 years, guess I haven't picked up that Southern Draw yet!!

LOL That was fun. Mine said West... "Your accent is the lowest common denominator of American speech. Unless you’re a SoCal surfer, no one thinks you have an accent."

I'm from Oklahoma, but have been in Alabama for 17 years. Guess I haven't picked up the drawl.
