    Question What American accent do I have?

    Hi everyone,

    I'm from NY but don't have the typical NY accent. I recorded a small reading and was wondering if any Americans on this forum could tell me where my accent would fall regionally? I think it's closest to Mid-Western?

    Thanksss

    It's very neutral.
    The I in "time" sounded odd.
    The cadence was more odd. Not enough inflection or pauses to show the break in thoughts.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I would have guessed Oklahoma or Northern Arkansas, Southern Missouri.
