Hmm - "Inland North" - you betcha that's my accent. Funny little test to determine what sort of American accent you have.

haha...here's mine: ""North Central" is what professional linguists call the Minnesota accent. If you saw "Fargo" you probably didn't think the characters sounded very out of the ordinary. Outsiders probably mistake you for a Canadian a lot."

Hobbled Wife here... I'm an "Inland North" too! Funny! Ames - guess all those years in California corrupted your good Minnesota accent.
