Like Chas, it placed me in the Northeast.

We had one in the town I grew up in, in California. It was great!

I can't see it on my phone Sad

Your 3 most similar cities are Columbus, Cincinnati, and Toledo, Ohio. Your least similar area is New England, also New Orleans.

Why thank you, love!
It fits me perfectly since I live in Ohio and also grew up here from birth to 12.

I got Little Rock, Arkansas, Jackson, Mississippi, and Montgomery, Alabama. Frankly, I don't think the thing knew where to put me exactly, but it did know I was from the South.

RE: Place your American accent quiz/map
Haha nice, this placed me in my home town, Seattle. Sweet. Also got Tacoma, which some extended family lives in, and Portland (also have fam there). But as far as I know we all speak the same around here.

Least similar: Worcester, Providence, Philadelphia

I was actually not expecting it to place me at home because some questions I could have given multiple answers to. Like tennis shoes/running shoes/sneakers. And Aunt vs ant. I don't have a concrete method of addressing several things. I change every so often.

BTW it's POP!!!!! haha, but that wasn't a question on mine. I've called it soda before on whim, usually when talking about a soda machine.

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.

RE: Place your American accent quiz/map
I use pop and soda interchangeably, but there wasn't an option for that if I recall, I think I put other.

1) I love her! This video is hilarious and makes me laugh to tears.
2) haha yea whatever make fun but saying pop makes me 5x more likely to properly pronounce the word pecan (I just made this statistic up but I stand by it!)
3) soda is perfectly acceptable...when speaking Spanish!
