Meme: What American accent do you have?

Okay, I haven't done a meme here at LiveJournal in forever and a day. So I think it's about time.

What do you think?

Unfortunately, following the original link to this meme didn't take me anywhere today -- so maybe it's gone now (???). Sorry about that for those interested!

Needless to say, I cut that code -- as I prefer not to have a dead link in my blog...

What American accent do you have?
Created by Xavier on

Neutral. Not Northern, Southern, or Western, just American. Your national American identity is more important to you than your local identity, because you don't really have a local identity to begin with.

For those wondering, I don't have any rural or regional accent -- that's pretty much true of everyone here in Portland, Oregon. We have what I think of as 'generic' American voices.

That is NOT to say that I -- and other Portlanders -- have no local identity, however! Far from it! But why argue with a meme? I mean, that's pretty pointless, right? (smile)
