The World According to Tiff Sniff

Meandering ponderings and wonderings on the state of things.


I guess my education worked, after all

Although I think there are those who would disagree. Explains why my grandmother from rural Giles county has a hard time understanding me, though.

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.

    My husband says that our accents have more to do with our "mother tongue" than where we have lived. Do you have ancestors from that area of the country?

    The survey said my accent was as Philadelphia as a cheesesteak. They're right. My hometown is 30 minutes from Philly (Wilmington, Delaware). And yes, some people do think my accent is strange or can't place it--they guess New York, New Jersey?
