    Which American accent do you have?
    Southern

    People used to hate Southern accents but now everyone wants one.

    I hate southern accents. They sound so bad. :S

    To be fair, I hate most accents that don't sound normal. Brooklyn, Boston, super-Canadian (SORE-y?), and Southern. I can't think of any others in the NA region.

    Insert pseudo-philosophical quote here (and don't forget the italics): Be careful of how you misrepresent others, tomorrow or today, for the misrepresentation you now speak, may become the poison your enemies later seek; truth.

    I didn't write the "now everyone wants one." So I cannot speak to the issue. I have a southern accent that I am slowly changing into a neutral one.

    Anchorage is the closest city to where I live (150 miles from Anchorage by small aircraft out to the bush village where I live, no roads) So they got it right on.

    I live in Tennessee. The dialect test puts me a little to to the north north/west.
    I'm just glad I don't have the TN accent, every one tells me I sound like a game show host.
