    Хорошо What American accent do you have? (tests)

    Всем привет. Уже пару недель с интересом читаю форум. Тема интересна. Вот решил и присоединиться:-)
    Нашел тесты по определению регионального английского:

    1. http://www.youthink.com/quiz.cfm?act...ke&obj_id=9827

    2. http://www.gotoquiz.com/what_america...nt_do_you_have

    Я получил:
    Neutral. You`re not Northern, Southern, or Western, you`re just plain - American. Your national identity is more important than your local identity, because you don`t really have a local identity. You might be from the region in that map, which is defined by this kind of accent, but you could easily not be. Or maybe you just moved around a lot growing up.



    И:
    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.

    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."



    well, actually, "soda" :D

    You`re not Northern, Southern, or Western, you`re just plain -American-. Your national identity is more important than your local identity, because you don`t really have a local identity. You might be from the region in that map, which is defined by this kind of accent, but you could easily not be. Or maybe you just moved around a lot growing up.

    Your Result: The Northeast
    Judging by how you talk you are probably from north Jersey, New York City, Connecticut or Rhode Island. Chances are, if you are from New York City (and not those other places) people would probably be able to tell if they actually heard you speak.

    Ха-ха, вспомнилось, как некоторые американцы говорили "Where's your accent from? New Jersey?"

    На самом деле, вот если бы с микрофоном, тогда более достоверно было бы

    Which American accent do you have?
    Northern

    You have a Northern accent. That could either be the Chicago/Detroit/Cleveland/Buffalo accent (easily recognizable) or the Western New England accent that news networks go for.

    What American accent do you have?

    Your Result: The West


    Your accent is the lowest common denominator of American speech. Unless you're a SoCal surfer, no one thinks you have an accent. And really, you may not even be from the West at all, you could easily be from Florida or one of those big Southern cities like Dallas or Atlanta.

    ... i was sure it would be that way. Try to speak as if you put a hot spud into your mouth and it will work out

    Also known as a "Philadelphia accent" but also heard in south Jersey, Baltimore, and thereabouts.

    Плохо это или хорошо - я не знаю...
