OT: What Kind of accent do you have?
 
This will probably be a given for most of you New Yorkers on here (Although it said mine was "Mid-West" even though I've never been there) But I figure I would post for fun since we are in the full swing of slow summer.

Check it out....

Australian accent........ funny that

Sockosensei 07-11-2007 11:16 PM

I came out as Northeastern (correct), but remind me...why is this in the Rangers' section?

This could either mean an r-less NYC or Providence accent or one from Jersey which doesn't sound the same. (People in Jersey don't call their state "Joisey" in real life)

Win - I'm from LI, people tell me I don't have a real NY accent but they know I'm from around here.

Cause this is my home board where I post 99.99% of the time, and I prefaced the thread with OT, as to inform board members "warning: this has nothing to do with Hockey and or the Rangers" hence being, Off-Topic... :)

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.
According to the map, it shows my accent being bigger north of the city. Now I was born in Middletown, NY but I have lived in Brooklyn all my life. I never thought I've had much of a NY accent but alot of my friends from around the country say I do.

I would figure that for that part of Upstate NY makes sense. Maybe not New York city though..then again I don't have the typical WFAN-caller esque voice :biglaugh:

Balej20* 07-11-2007 11:49 PM

They got me right...NYC, Long Island area.

Inferno 07-11-2007 11:51 PM

What American accent do you have? (Best version so far)

Midland

("Midland" is not necessarily the same thing as "Midwest") The default, lowest-common-denominator American accent that newscasters try to imitate. Since it's a neutral accent, just because you have a Midland accent doesn't mean you're from the Midland.


i consider myself accentless to be honest. i just never hear an accent in the way i speak.....which i guess applies to everyone.....hmm....

I took it, but it doesn't work for me: I have a very English accent (holdover from childhood there).

Then again, maybe it's smarter than I thought: it told me I'm from the Northeast, maybe even Jersey, which is bang on!

I guess this is correct. I'm not from the city, but both of my parents were so I guess that's where I got it from. I personally don't think I have an accent, but a bunch of people that I know out west seem to pick up on it real quick.

NYRchick 07-12-2007 01:09 AM

I'm in Forest Hills,but I don't have too heavy an accent. It's most apparent when I get angry:naughty:

rickyrod 07-12-2007 01:30 AM

Says Northeastern for me. I'm from Brooklyn, but my accent isn't huge, it's more of a monotone grumble.

Gotcha. Now I know the other meaning of "OT" and will shut my big mouth:joker:

Inferno 07-12-2007 02:42 AM

I got midlands. I think I'm "accentless" too but get me around some good ole New Yawkaz and I'll be far from accentless in no time.

Pogo 07-12-2007 05:02 AM

I got Northeastern which makes no sense since I always pronounce my r's. Geographically it makes even less sense since I've lived pretty much all over the place.

Oh and Inferno, thats the funniest ****ing **** I've seen in awhile. If Espn would do a dumb ass poll to see which OT was more now, the hamster would kill Ashley's accent thingy, no offense Ash. But that thing is flippin awesome

Western

Like Midland, Western is a default, neutral, sounds-good-on-the-evening-news accent. So you might not actually be from the West (but you probably are).

I'm Canadian but grew up on American tv and speak to Americans all day with my job, occasionally one will say I have a Canadian accent but I'm not sure what that is other then saying,'eh?' at the end of a sentence occasionally.

Well your head is most likely split in two with the top part jumping up and down when you speak, like Canadiens in Southpark. You've probably never noticed this, because like Inferno said before, no one can hear their own accent. Also you probably say "uut and abuut" instead of "out and about".

Split in two and jumping up and down when i talk is fair and accurate but the "uut and abuut" part i've always wondered where that comes from. I've heard from Americans before that think Canadians say that but I've never heard anyone I know pronounce "out and about" like that, it may possibly be an east coast thing like maybe in Newfoundland.

I have cousins from Ottawa and they all say the uut and abuut thing, maybe you're just hanging around with the wrong crowd man. Definitely not something you want to miss.
