Place your American accent quiz/map

Not surprisingly, I speak like people in Ohio speak.

I suppose if I ever visit the US I'll feel most at home in New York.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

I received Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Honolulu as matches....which is weird since I've been born and raised in the DC area, although the DC area was in red too, so that makes sense.

I can't see it on my phone Sad

Swing with me a while, we can listen to the birds call, we can keep each other warm.
Swing with me forever, we can count up every flower, we can weather every storm.

Quiz put me in Ohio too (Columbus, Cincinnati, Toledo) but I'm bred, born and raised within a 5-mile radius of DC. Huh

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.
