What American Accent Do You Have?

What American Accent Do You Have?

Language is as varied as food region by region.  What's the difference between "accent" and "dialect"?  Each person that speaks has an accent to someone else.  An accent is something heard in contrast to another.  It is how you pronounce words such as tomato or potato.  Dialect refers to the terms and vocabulary people use.  Do you say soda, pop, or soda pop?  Do you say y'all or dude?   

"To most Americans, an accent is something that only other people have, those other people usually being in New York, Boston, and the South. And of those other people, half of the ones you meet will swear they "don't have an accent."

Well, strictly speaking, the only way to not have an accent is to not speak. If you're from anywhere in the USA you have an accent (which may or may not be the accent of the place you're from). Go through this short quiz and you'll find out just which accent that is."--Xavier Kun

I took the accent quiz and my result is below.
