As Philly As Cheesesteak

Lou FCD

Well this is dead on. I was born and raised just outside the city limits.

What American accent do you have?

Your Result: Philadelphia
 

Your accent is as Philadelphian as a cheesesteak! If you’re not from Philadelphia, then you’re from someplace near there like south Jersey, Baltimore, or Wilmington. if you’ve ever journeyed to some far off place where people don’t know that Philly has an accent, someone may have thought you talked a little weird even though they didn’t have a clue what accent it was they heard.

    Being from California, I got the ‘generic American’ accent. I feel so unspecial!

    So what IS a Philadephia accent? I’ve only ever heard one once for like 2 minutes and it was insanely weird sounding.

    I’d guess my accent would sound to you like Rocky’s but not so pronounced or brainless, if that makes sense. His is very South Philly, which is different than mine, but only a Philly person hears the difference, in my experience.

    Lots of people who don’t hear a Philly accent often (like from out west or down south here) mistake it for a New York accent, but Northeasterners can tell the difference like night and day.
