It's the middle of the week and time to shake things up a bit.
What American accent do you have?
I came upon this quiz and would love to hear what your results are!
This quiz is intended to identify which American regional accent you have.
I took the quiz myself as a Canadian, and according to the results, I have an Inland North accent, native to the Great Lakes Region which is in fact where I abide.

Quiz Created on GoToQuiz
There are 13 questions to answer, all fairly easy and straightforward.
One helpful tip I'd like to share is to read the questions aloud as you are answering them.
If you are reading the questions out loud, you'll quickly find out what your answers are. You see, if you are reading the questions cold, you'll have no doubt as to how you actually pronounce something because it will come across very well naturally (you can't miss!) and thus reveal your native dialect.
If any dialect coaches would like to step up and take this test to help verify its credence, I'd be extremely interested to hear your thoughts on the matter.
Even if this test is not scientifically conclusive (it is better to have a professional evaluate you in person or on the phone), it is a good way to get an idea of what your accent may be.

Once you've taken the test, come back to VOX Daily and let us know what your results were!
