My Accent

This was actually pretty fun to take, since I am constantly ragging on Hubby that he talks funny. Like Erin and Aaron sound the same. As well as pin and pen. And Dawn and Don. I mean, HOW do you pronounce those the same???

When I moved to Florida at the age of 19, I took a job waiting tables at TGIFriday’s, and I had several customers giggle when I asked if they wanted more “cawfee.” I can’t even pronounce it like a Floridian, but my Toms River, NJ, accent has definitely been toned down over the nearly 20 years I’ve lived in the South.

Anyway, here’s my quiz results:

What American accent do you have?

Your Result: Philadelphia

Your accent is as Philadelphian as a cheesesteak! If you’re not from Philadelphia, then you’re from someplace near there like south Jersey, Baltimore, or Wilmington. if you’ve ever journeyed to some far off place where people don’t know that Philly has an accent, someone may have thought you talked a little weird even though they didn’t have a clue what accent it was they heard.
