I'm from Wisconsin, and I went to Colorado to visit my sister. So I was talking to this guy and he goes, "Your from Wisconsin, right?" Kind of freaked out I answer, "how did you know?" He replied, "your voice. You have a accent" I never noticed it before, but maybe that's just my hearing because his voice sounded the same to me.

    You would not be able to distinguish someone from Oregon or Washington from each other in the way they talk. Over here we we speak the clearest english in the world. We only have an accept to other people with strong accents.

    States; not really... It's more regional. I personally can hear the accents from the South and New England. I live in the Midwest, so I don't think any of us an accent, but that's because this is where I've grown up. x3 Of course, I've been told I have a slight accent, but then again... o.o' XD

    But not exactly every state... people from eastern Pennsylvania sound different from western Pennsylvania, people from Massachusetts sound different but the accent in Boston, MA is a lot stronger. The farther you go north in Maine the stronger the accent gets.

    Accents aren't broken by state boundaries, but by geographical ones such as mountains and rivers, as well as certain pockets of ethnicity and countries of origin. *grin*

    I think most do.
    I never knew I had an accent until someone guessed that I'm from Baltimore.
    Most people don't know that they have one either.

    I think its regional more then state by state. Like regional

    If you look at this map, which is the "chicagoland area" you see it moves into lower Wisconsin and upper Indiana as well. People in this area have a very different accent from where I attended college in IL 2 hours south.

    On that same thought, I have fairly equally spent my life in three distinct accent areas: Ireland, Arkansas, and the Midwest.

    People ask me all the time if I am FRENCH CANADIAN?
