America is the land of the free, home of the brave, and incidentally, the home of more than a few regional accents. Whether you cringe when your inner Midwesterner comes out or you wear your Southern accent loud and proud just like your shiny belt buckle, the place you grow up in has a huge influence on the way you speak.

And your home state doesn't just influence the way you pronounce certain words, it also affects what you call different things. For example, a Utah soda shop might be a Midwestern pop shop! Take the quiz to find out what area of the United States you hail from based on your answers. Don't forget to enter your email for a chance to win a Minky Couture blanket.
