What American accent do you have?

Here’s a fun little quiz to test what American accent you have. According to my results I have a north-eastern accent, which allegedly is close to the correct dictionary pronunciation. Given that I’m not American this isn’t terribly surprising.

  1. 12. Do you say RIGHT and PRICE with the same vowel sound as RIDE and PRIZE?

    This one was interesting. I remember thinking about (or having it pointed out to me) that in Australia, we sometimes lengthen vowels before a voiced consonant, but hearing the difference just now startled me again. I think that we lengthen all long vowels and diphtongs before voiced consonants, as well as most short a’s (eg, mat –> mad).
