About This Quiz

PAHK THE CAH IN HAHVAHD YAHD! If you're confused about this, there's a big chance that you're NOT from Boston! Whether you're "pahking" the "cah" or drinking "cawfee," let's find out which American accent you have!

The United States is often said to be the melting pot of the world. What they don't often mention is the abundance of accents pouring out of the 50 states. Your accent helps pinpoint which part of the country you're from. From the West Coast to the East Coast, which American accent are you speaking with?

You might be from New England and speak with that distinct Bostonian accent! Do you have 25 letters in your alphabet, rather than 26? When you park the car, you're probably leaving the "R" out of your sentence!

Rather than living in New England, you might be a few miles south, in the tri-state area. If you're from the New York Metro area, there's a chance you're drinking "cawfee" over coffee!

Travel a few more miles south! You might find yourself in the height of the deep South, and if you're from this area, you might notice the easy rise and fall of your words!

Maybe you're not from the East Coast! You might have that slow drawl or uplifted sentences of a California native. From all these accents, which one comes naturally to you? Are you skipping your R's or are you taking your coffee with an "aw?"
