Mid-Atlantic. This is what everyone calls a Philadelphia accent although it's also the accent of south Jersey, Baltimore, and Wilmington. Well, everyone that lives near there, that is. Outsiders can tell you talk differently from them even though they can't tell what your accent is.
If you are not from there, you are probably one of the following:
(a) A New Yorker who, unlike most New Yorkers, rhymes "on" with "dawn"; or
(b) A Yat from New Orleans.
You are probably not from Eastern New England or the Great Lakes area, and certainly not from anywhere in the West or Canada.
Take this quiz now - it's easy!
i don't know if i'd even recognize a "neutral" accent, LOL! i haven't spent much time in Philly either, maybe i should visit some friends and compare, heh.
That was fun.
I am, apparently, from New York.
Apparently I am a northerner when it comes to my accent. :) I was born in B-more, but my parents were from the Midwest.
